Taiwan and Europe ATM Heists Linked

ATM hacking

Hacker group Cobalt, which stole more than US$2 million (S$2.86 million) from Taiwan's First Commercial Bank ATMs in July 2016, was also found to be responsible for a series of ATM hacks in several European countries in the same year. The attack methods were matching, and the same malware called ATM Spitter was used. Taiwan investigators said that they were not aware of any links between Cobalt and the hackers behind the Taiwan bank heist.
