Krebs has an article on ATM skimming every few months. I think this one well worth reading, and watch the video. More prevalent in US and Europe too! I'm going to practice doing a much better job of covering my hand when entering the PIN. In our last trip to Europe we used ATMs pretty heavily. Only at banks, but I'm not so sure that's secure anymore.http://krebsonsecurity.com/2016/04/a...mming-attacks/
A comment pointed out that only the first of five people hiding their hand is effective. I noticed that too.
About a year ago Krebs had a series on Bluetooth compromised ATMs in several major resort areas in Mexico. In this case I'm not sure any hand covering would help because machine internaks were compromised?
