Security experts have revealed how to prevent malware from taking control of an ATM or bank account.
The experts, who worked on an article for Money.com titled ‘How to stop ATM malware from stealing money from your bank’, told the publication that the main problem was that most ATM malware targets the bank account as well as the bank card, so the most effective security method is to disable the card and bank account on the ATM.
“In most cases, the malware will leave behind a trace that will be visible for a few days, so disabling the card is the best solution.
For the bank accounts, we recommend to disable it through the app, as this will prevent them from gaining access to the accounts,” the experts said.”
The best way to prevent ATM malware is to use a PIN.
PINs have been around for over 50 years and there are numerous ways to disable PINs.
The most common way is to simply press the security lock button on the machine, or with your fingerprint, but the PINs are also easily disabled through the Android banking app.”
The experts said it was not easy to disable ATM PINs, but they had found a solution by using a combination of a simple tool and a combination code, which the bank used to disable access to certain accounts.
“We found that using a simple PIN combination of 8-9 is the simplest and most effective way to disable an ATM PIN.
You can find it at a bank branch, online or in a hardware store,” the expert said.
“For the bank cards, it is usually easier to simply disable the cards.
The best solution is to enable the PIN on the card.
We also found that the best way is also to disable one of the security modules on the cards and this is done by enabling the PIN.
For these cards, we have found a combination on the hardware store that can disable the PIN as well.”
In a further development, the experts found that it is not possible to disable a PIN on a mobile device, as most malware has the ability to access the card’s SIM card and can even access the SIM card’s address bar.
“For this reason, it would be better to disable all of the ATM PIN on your mobile device and just turn it off, as malware will still be able to access this PIN,” the team wrote.
“You should also be careful not to disable your PIN on any other mobile device as malware can access the PIN and gain access to your other accounts.
For example, if you are running an app or a game that you use regularly, this could be a good idea.
If you are in a bank or checking account, you should not disable your card either.”
The team also pointed out that disabling a PIN will not prevent any bank malware from using your PIN to access your other bank accounts.
“This is the main reason why disabling PINs is so important.
You will still have access to bank accounts even if you disable PIN, so be careful when you disable your ATM PIN,” they wrote.
The Experts also recommended that if you’re considering disabling your PIN, be sure to make sure that you’ve disabled it on your computer and that it’s safe to do so.
“If you have enabled the PIN but it’s not working on your phone, you can always delete the old PIN from the phone, so you’ll have access again,” the report said.
The bank said that while there were no specific ways to protect your bank accounts from ATM malware, the researchers have outlined the best ways to avoid the most common threats, which are banking trojans and banking viruses.
“Our team is committed to helping our customers protect their bank accounts and we encourage you to learn more about this security feature,” the bank said.
