Kaspersky Lab on Tuesday revealed further details about a memory-only “fileless malware” campaign that a cyber-criminal organisation has been employing to steal money remotely from ATMs while leaving behind virtually no trace of malicious activity. According to a Securelist blog post, the primary payload used in the cyber-heists is ATMitch, a malware capable of issuing a variety of commands to compromised ATM machines, including counting the number of banknotes in a dispenser (for reconnaissance purposes) and dispensing money from any cassette with the mere touch of a button.
