Hackers  Steal Crypto from bitcoin atm

Bitcoin ATM manufacturer General Bytes had its servers compromised via a zero-day attack on Thursday that enabled hackers to make themselves the default administrators and modify settings so that all funds would be transferred to their wallet address.

The hack was confirmed by General Bytes, which owns and operates 8,827 Bitcoin ATMs that are accessible in over 120 countries. The company is headquartered in Prague, which is also where the ATMs are manufactured. ATM customers can buy or sell over 40 coins.

How the attack happened?

The company believes the hackers “scanned for exposed servers running on TCP ports 7777 or 443, including servers hosted on General Bytes’ own cloud service.”

"The attacker was able to create an admin user remotely via CAS administrative interface via a URL call on the page that is used for the default installation on the server and creating the first administration user.”
