According to The Times of London, a criminal gang in U.K was able to steal confidential banking data by bugging ATMs with a MP3 player.
The gang tapped the phone line between the targeted freestanding cash dispenser ATM and a wall soket by placing a two-way adaptor on it and connect it to a MP3. The electronic noise from the data traffic will be recorded into the MP3 player and will be interpreted by using a modem line tap or using special software program.
They managed to get copies of credit cards and make purchases worth $380 000 according to The Times.

Cypher: How about if we tapped the phone line by using handphone. Then we transfer the recorded noise to a software to interpret the data. Just an idea. :d
