    3D printing being used to mass produce ATM skimmers and PoS terminals

    Skimmers

    An individual known only by the online handle “Gripper” has popped up on several underground cybercrime forums advertising a new service. No, it’s not another botnet or malware package — it’s ATM and PoS card skimmers. However, this isn’t like the cheap readers that card thieves have been affixing to ATMs for years. Gripper claims his outfit can mass produce entire readers with a 3D printed casing and the necessary electronics to make everything look legit.

    As proof, Gripper provided pictures of the facility in China where these devices are built. He includes a snapshot of a 3D printer making a piece of a VeriFone PoS terminal, completed parts for ATM machines, and several completed VeriFone readers allegedly built from scratch. The ads even mention several widely used systems by name, and buyers get free 24/7 support. You probably don’t even get that from your computer manufacturer.

    Most card skimmers are designed to be integrated with, or added on top of, the real card reader of an ATM or PoS kiosk. When a customer swipes a card, the skimmer saves the card number and any PIN code that was entered. The thief can come back later and retrieve the data to use or sell on the black market. The advertised machines have the same basic functionality, but would be much harder to detect.

    Ad

    Some of the components Gripper offers include keypads for Wincor ATMs ($1,000), the cover/camera panel for NCR 5886 ATMs ($1,850), and various complete VeriFone terminals for undisclosed sums. Gripper says his group is willing to send devices anywhere in the world and will sell outright, or just work with shopkeepers to pay them a percentage. Several supposed buyers have posted on the forums to confirm that Gripper can deliver what he claims.

    If this and other groups have managed to reach the point of mass producing passable card skimmers and PoS machines, you might have to be much more wary of where you’re swiping that card.

    Company showcasing 3D printing services

    Attendees will have the opportunity to win a 3D-printed bust of themselves and enter a ping pong tournament that will be played with 3D-printed balls and paddles at an open house Thursday and Friday at Central 3D Systems, a Waukesha distributor of 3D printers.

    Central 3D Systems, which is affiliated with office equipment distributor Central Office Systems, in May began selling equipment made by 3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina. The printers layer ultrathin sheets of plastic, metal or other materials to make an object.

    While there have been early adopters, the 3D printing marketplace is still in its infancy, said Chris Rosecky, president of Central 3D Systems. But companies that have embraced, or are planning to embrace, the technology will be ahead of their competition, he said.

    “It’s going to go from being a competitive advantage to being a competitive necessity,” Rosecky said.

    The event is open to the public, and will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
