Sepio Systems Solution to Prevent ATM Jackpotting Attacks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND – February 13, 2018“Sepio’s software suite can prevent the recent ATM Jackpotting attacks,” said Robert Bigman, a senior advisor to Sepio and the former Chief Information Security Officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. “The recent attacks are a painful demonstration of the ease of executing cyber-attack after gaining physical access to IT equipment. The current approach to ATM security is insufficient. Integrating cyber-physical security components is a necessity," added Mr. Bigman.

ATM Jackpotting attacks have been around for a while, mostly in South America and Africa. Recent developments and warnings coming from the U.S Secret Service confirm that this type of cyber-crime is now widely happening in the US as well.

The described attack goes through the process of infecting the ATM with the Ploutus.D malware, and then maintaining remote access capabilities to trigger the cash spitting. All Jackpotting attacks, require physical access to the ATM to connect USB device. Keyboard emulator, detachable media and wireless interface are used for infecting the machine.

“Sepio’s software suite prevent these attacks by blocking any malicious hardware from being connected. Our solution alerts when a new device is connected before the attack starts,” said Greg Poch, Sepio Systems Vice President of Sales. “Our clients find our solution effective and easy to maintain,” added Mr. Poch.

Sepio Systems Sponsors Cyber Intelligence Asia 2018 on March 20-22, 2018 in Singapore

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND – January 4, 2018 – Sepio Systems, a leader and pioneer in securing organizations against attacks via rogue hardware devices, will be presenting at the 2018 Cyber Intelligence Asia conference in Singapore.

Cybercrimes in Asia are on an increase with many banks, utilities, law firms and governments being targeted. Singapore is a region hub for the financial industry and for banks, investment firms, and insurance companies protecting their infrastructure is a key to business resilience.
Cybercrimes and sophisticated attacks are becoming an everyday occurrence forcing governments and utilities to make sure their cyber defense systems are top priority.

“During the past 18 months, we are seeing that the use of manipulated hardware by internal abusers has become a very compelling option for stealing sensitive information without being detected.”, said Bentsi Ben Atar, the CMO and Co-Founder for Sepio Systems. “Internet connectivity is heavily monitored by enterprises and many of the attempts to simply email or upload the stolen data is caught. The use of manipulated hardware that can be easily and very affordably purchased online provides a complete invisible channel for safely taking the information out.”

In THE USE OF MANIPULATED HARDWARE BY INTERNAL ABUSERS workshop, Mr. Ben Atar will describe real incidents and will demonstrate common attack flows and scenarios. The session will provide best practice recommendations and a brief of available tools to secure organizations both against data leakage as well and infection campaigns – both of insiders as well as threat agents and organized cybercrime groups.
