Brian Krebs Analyzes Footage of ATM Skimmers…

After analyzing security tapes from a number of ATM skimmer operations Brian Krebs has figured out that the number one way to protect yourself is devilishly simple.  Simply cover your hand when keying your PIN.

I spent several hours this past week watching video footage from hidden cameras that skimmer thieves placed at ATMs to surreptitiously record customers entering their PINs. I was surprised to see that out of the dozens of customers that used the compromised cash machines, only one bothered to take the simple but effective security precaution of covering his hand when entering his 4-digit code.
