How save is your information if you get money out of an ATM? Less than you may think – considering that Diebold ATM’s were infected by a computer virus.

Running Windows XP on an ATM strikes me as a pretty stupid idea! What’s even scarier than that is the company behind all this – Diebold. They’re the ones who are supposed to deliver the e-voting machines for the next election. They already had a number of issues with their voting machines. Fortunately, advocates are paying attention, and there is a strong push for more security. Check Slashdot for the latest scandal.
