What idiot puts ATM's on the Internet anyway?

Link: Worm hits Windows-based ATMs

OK, there's a lot of blame to spread around here. First, the utter stupidity of the banks for actually REQUESTING Windows for their ATM's. Second, Diebold's stupidity in listening to them and then not even thinking about security aspects. Back to the banks again for their amazing optimism in not isolating the ATM's whether or not Diebold had provided any security.

None of this makes me feel very warm and comfy about my bank account.
