    lmao what a dumbass why would you admit you`re getting too much money

    pfft i think the machine was just tired of knowing it`s human masters were getting ripped off by taxes so it decided to give some money back

    Just a computer, monitor and modem. A lot of Atm`s need a special card as well as the PIN to do what he did. But not requiring this amount of security helps the service crews spend less time if they can activate controls without opening the actual Atm (Which may require swiping a special card and calling the Atm company for a one use temporary opening/closing code...among other authentication)

    "Just a computer, monitor and modem" No, you`re forgetting whoever is responsible for balancing that ATM ....part of my job is to balance ATMs, and you won`t be able to do this on any machines that are connected to a financial institution, because they use much better machines. There is no such magical "code". Also, it`s very frustrating to look for outages. But I find them all, and this guy was obviously caught. Everyone who used that machine afterwards was also likely adjusted, because when they used that machine, they left behind all their banking info.

    i don`t know about in the US - but the "Hanco" or suchlike machines have an admin password / key sequence to get into the management functions. usually it is "Blank Key and 1" and the password is default 987654, we used to have one at our bingo club and we didnt change the code - ive seen another one and they didnt either - i was in their management functions, so its very easy to change the settings however the one in our bingo hall only had 1 drawer of money - £10 notes, and i think it would only hold tenners cos the twentys were 2 big. cant remember exactly.

    I would have mentioned something if I got more money than I should - I`m not selfish. It took NINE days for someone to be a good person! People are so sickening...

    Props to the guy who rigged the machine like that. And I`m glad they didn`t add the word "machine" to it - that`s redundant.

    What a wonderful thing to broadcast. Reminds me of the time I heard a Chicago radio station announce that an underground telephone line had been cut and police and fire services in that area would be unavailable for at least two hours.

    It doesn`t matter anyhow, if this is completely true everyone who used the atm after it got hacked is going to be adjusted like matsuri_aka said. Otherwise they will be getting a nice fat bill in the mail... You can`t cheat the man.

    if i found an ATM that some one had hacked i would just make sure to get more money than i had intended to. not tell some one and blow the whole thing!

    While I probably wouldn`t have told either, she was the only smart one, because unlike the dude that used the code first, the majority of everyone else would have used their ATM cards from banks, which will have all their information and would have, after the fiasco was discovered, been charged for all the money they recieved. She was the only smart one who looked at what would have happened. Surely, it was not going to spout out free cash forever, and eventually, everyone who got more cash than they asked for would be charged from their bank accounts, so she was actually pretty smart. Who knows, maybe the bank even let her keep the cash for being a good samaritan.

    HOW DID THEY `KNOW` HE DID IT??? THE ATM PROBABLY MALFUNCTIONED ON ITS OWN AND THEY`RE BLAMING THAT BLACK GUY.

    THEY SHOULD GIVE MORE DETAILS OTHERWISE NEWS COMPANY ENDS UP LOOKING WORSE. (LIKE A VIDEO OF HIM BREAKING OPEN THE ATM AND HOOKING UP A PC TO IT...) KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
