Can hackers get into ATM cameras?

EDITOR – Having read your very interesting article in the Mablethorpe Leader ‘OAP is targeted by card fraud crooks’, I can sympathise with the lady.

I have recently moved to Trusthorpe from Market Rasen and this happened to me three weeks ago.

They tried to get £295 from an ATM in Australia, but HSBC rang and asked me was I on holiday. When I said ‘no’ they quickly stopped all transactions.

The problem was they not only cloned my card but had got my PIN number as well.

Is it possible for online hackers to get into the cameras at these type of machine and is that how they are cloning cards from abroad?

Only a thought.
