“The miscreants are gang of hackers who are involved in such nefarious activity and are causing losses to companies and in case they are not apprehended at the earliest they may cause huge financial losses to various banks thereby causing loss of the public money in general,” the complainant said.

Noida police has resisted the FIR at Phase-III police station and have started the investigation. They are scanning the CCTV footage and bank log to establish the connection and identify the accused.

HOW IT IS DONE:

CCTV video was examined during the investigation. The suspect can be seen entering the ATM and accessing the upper half of the machine, which houses the computer.

The malware was uploaded and the system rebooted using an infected USB drive, according to an officer, who added that after some time, the accused can be seen escaping with the money.

As soon as the crime begins, the systems are disconnected from the service provider’s main servers.

When used at an ATM, the virus generates a code, which the crooks communicate to their gang mates, who transform the code to a password. Following that, as soon as the password is entered, the ATM begins issuing cash.
