We all know that 32 Lakhs ATM cards from various private and nationalized banks from India compromised by China attackers. State Bank of India, HDFC and other banks blocked the majority of the problematic ATM cards and reissuing the cards to the customers.
There are a lot of rumors on the issue. People think that the ATMs are the main culprit for the attack. But the real problem lies in the third-party company named Hitachi payment solutions situated in Chennai.
The company is providing ATM deployment services and POS devices to the banking sector. Few banks like Yes Bank have a long-term contract with the company for the ATM deployment across the country. Hitachi Payment Solutions servers are compromised with malware infected by a group of attackers from China.
