If you have plans to travel to Las Vegas next week, you may want to cancel them. Why? Because the city will be crawling with hackers attending a "Black Hat" conference on electronic security. The sponsors of the events describe them as "highly technical information security conferences that bring together thought leaders from all facets of the infosec world--from the corporate and government sectors to academic and even underground researchers."
In one of the attacks, Jack reprogrammed the ATM remotely over a network, without touching the machine; the second attack required he open the front panel and plug in a USB stick loaded with malware.
