Researchers from the private tech firm Kaspersky Lab revealed how hackers are able to steal money from automated teller machines (ATMs), BBC reported.

According to the researchers, who are based in Moscow, Russia, cyber criminals use a malware to gain access and manipulate the operations of the cash machines.

Based on their studies and investigations, the criminals insert a bootable CD inside the ATM to install the malware. Experts from the lab identified the malware as Tyupkin. Investigators confirmed that this is the software used in most ATM-heists in Asia, Latin America and Europe, according to My Broadband.
