Trustwave Introduces ATM Technical Security Review

Comprehensive Security Review Tests ATM Architecture, Identifies Vulnerabilities and Recommends Remediation

CHICAGO (August 12, 2010) -Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions, introduces Automated Teller Machines (ATM) Technical Security Review to evaluate and test a bank's ATM architecture and remediate risk. The service will be delivered by Trustwave's SpiderLabs - the advanced security team at Trustwave responsible for incident response and forensics, penetration testing and application security, and security research.

The ATM Technical Security Review was developed in response to a recent increase in malware attacks specifically targeting ATMs. Trustwave's SpiderLabs has investigated such attacks and found that organized crime groups with expert knowledge of how ATMs work are utilizing known security deficiencies in a variety of ATM brands to obtain consumers debit card numbers and PIN numbers, as well as cash.

In order to help prevent such attacks and secure ATM manufacturers, banks and consumers, the ATM Technical Security Review includes four components to help lockdown the ATM:

  • Bank ATM Architecture Review: Identifies gaps in the security posture of the ATM network that could be utilized by an attacker to deploy malware.
  • Internal Penetration Test: Determines if current network security controls are vulnerable to attack.
  • Machine-level Tests: Reviews and tests physical security, network security, application security and operating system/firmware security pertaining to the ATM in an attempt to extract debit and PIN data, as well as cash from each machine tested.
  • Tactical and Strategic Recommendations: Clients receive a technical and executive staff briefing and detailed report containing test results and remediation recommendations.

"We were very impressed with the thorough review conducted by the SpiderLabs team when they examined our ATM architecture," said Rafael Antillon Cantu, chief security officer at Grupo Financiero Banorte, Mexico. "The ATM Technical Security Review helped us better understand where an attacker could potentially penetrate our ATM infrastructure and allowed us to implement additional security controls to help ensure we would not fall victim to such attacks."

"Trustwave created this service after investigating the world's first-known ATM-specific malware attack that enabled the theft of thousands of ATM cards," said Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "Our expertise and understanding of the attack method allowed us to create this program to help our customers ensure they are not victims to such attacks and help protect the sensitive information of their consumers."

"ATMs are often seen as inherently secure because of their hardened case and the perceived difficulty to physically penetrate," said Nicholas J. Percoco, senior vice president of SpiderLabs. "After performing investigations on compromised ATMs, we have a keen understanding of those solutions that will help secure ATM infrastructure, protecting our customers' assets and their client's assets."
