Digital intelligence connects the dots to catch global ATM hackers

The Taipei Criminal Investigation Bureau (TCIB) received a report from a member of the public that an unattended ‘cash out’ of NT$60,000 ($2k) was being performed by two suspicious men at an ATM belonging to the First Commercial Bank.

In a matter of hours, it was discovered that over 40 ATM machines had been robbed using malware dubbed the “ATM spitter” which exploited a major software weakness shared by several financial institutions.

2 main challenges:

  • Identify and prosecute key players responsible for a cyberattack and bank theft by foreign nationals.
  • Analyze a wide range of digital evidence including data from communication networks, CCTV Images/Videos, bio-metrics, and police reports.
