When XP gets the axe, then what?
The overwhelming majority of ATM operators around the world will find themselves in between one of two spots on April 8:
1) a rock.
2) a hard place.
The reason: Of 90 percent of the world’s ATMs that are driven by Windows XP, 85 percent will be out of compliance with PCI standards as of April 8, as per PCI DSS Requirement 6.2:
Ensure that all system components and software are protected from known vulnerabilities by installing applicable vendor-supplied security patches. Install critical security patches within one month of release.
So, for the sake of argument, assume a worldwide total of 2.7 million operating machines, about 2.4 million of them running XP.
As of April 8, 2 million or so of these (85 percent) will be operating on outmoded, unsupported software — which is to say they’ll become a hacker’s playground.
