Diebold has released a security fix for its Opteva automated teller machines after cybercriminals apparently broke into the systems at one or more businesses in Russia and installed malicious software.

McMillan reports that Diebold learned of the incident [computerworld.com] in January and sent out a global security update to its ATM customers using the Windows operating system. It is not releasing full details of what happened, including which businesses were affected, but said criminals had gained physical access to the machines to install their malicious program.
