Experts Worried After Worm Hits Windows-Based ATMs

SarsSmarz writes "As if we weren't all predicting this."

Automatic teller machines at two banks running Microsoft's popular Windows software were infected by a computer virus in
August, the maker of the machines said on Monday.

The ATM infections, first reported by SecurityFocus.com, are believed to be the first of a computer virus wiggling directly onto cash machines.

Computer security experts predicted more problems to come as Windows migrates to critical systems consumers rely on.
