2016 was dominated by increasingly sophisticated methods of compromising ATMs, the miniaturisation of devices, and the reinvention of more basic attack vectors. Jackpotting the dispenser using ATM Malware and Black Boxes spread globally and proved very profitable for the perpetrators. Deep insert and throat inlay skimming devices, (so thin that they can be placed inside the card reader transport), challenged many of the popular anti-skimming solutions deployed by the industry. Card trapping returned and increased as a relatively simple and inexpensive way of stealing genuine EMV chip cards. Solid explosive attacks and explosive gas attacks, even when unsuccessful in obtaining the cash, often caused significant collateral damage to the ATM and buildings in the vicinity. SourceDouglas Russell, DFR Risk Management Ltd
