Researchers have found an oddly amusing sample of ATM malware which turns financial theft into a slot machine-style game.

On Tuesday, the Kaspersky Labs cybersecurity team explored the emergence of WinPot, an ATM hijacking malware family which first appeared in underground forums in March 2018.

While simple in its core functionality, WinPot -- named internally by Kaspersky as ATMPot -- is designed to compromise the ATMs of an unnamed but popular vendor and force these machines to empty their cassettes of all funds.
