ATM Vendors Threaten, Stop Research Presentation

An anonymous reader writes “A presentation about ‘The Underground Economy’, by Italian white hat hacker and security expert Raoul Chiesa, was replaced at the last minute during last week’s Hack In The Box conference. The reason behind this cancellation was that Chiesa received legal pressure from ATM vendors over the fact that the originally scheduled presentation covers details of various techniques and exploits of vulnerabilities that cyber criminals use to break into ATMs — flaws that have been known for a long time.”
