    I went to the local cash machine this morning....

    ...but instead of the usual display (Check Balance, Withdraw Cash etc), this was on the screen:

    That's the first time I've seen a Windows desktop and Command window on an ATM. No way was I going to put my card in it. Any ideas what's going on here?

    looks like someone hacking it, immediately call the bank
    cause if they get it hacked your card number may be in for a surprise.

    although this might have been an update gone bad but with all the attrib never seen that for sure

    The BATch file code style seems pretty old, so it's probably a genuine failed update!

    I once worked in an IT department with two people who had worked for different UK banks. They both refused to use cash machines, opting instead to get their money over the counter. They told me if I saw the code behind the ATM networks I would do the same!

    I saw an ATM the other day that had the "OS/" Warp" boot screen.

    cheers, Paul
