Using ATMs: look at this innovative field of skimming

So here's an interesting one: crims are getting ATM techs in Mexico to get some buetooth-enabled skimming stuff wedged inside the ATM!

The fortunate thing here is that they were lazy: meaning that the default "Free2Move" name on the radios was still present.

But the worry here is that from the outside: no way to tell if the ATM has been compromised aside from the Bluetooth sweep.

Only problem is that it wasn't Mexicans, but from the articles it was a lot of Eastern European accents being mentioned... Brian is still dripping out the details, but it's an interesting series of stories (as well as a reason to not blindly trust ATMs)
