An international criminal gang made two coordinated hits on ATMs around the world in matter of hours recently, withdrawing $5 million on December 21 last year and another $40 million on February 19 this year.
According to banks and investigators, the gang made large cash withdrawals after hacking into Indian and US credit card processing companies to raise the balances and withdrawal limits on MasterCard prepaid debit cards.
According to a report, hackers broke into the systems of the two Indian companies that handled prepaid cards for two Middle Eastern banks -- Bank of Muscat and RakBank. Bank of Muscat reported in February that it had to make a 15 million Rial or $39 million loss provisioning due to the fraud.
