MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Cyber crooks have come up with a new technique to siphon off ATM cardholders' money, Artyom Sychyov, a representative from the Bank of Russia said on Friday.

"This is an absolutely new method of stealing money via ATMs that has not occurred anywhere else before. Furthermore, it is wireless. We always emphasize, when speaking about skimming, that criminals should put something on the ATM. However, a new wireless technology appeared recently," the expert said.

Participants in information exchange within the framework of the monitoring and computer attacks response center of the Bank of Russia are receiving such information in time and have had an opportunity to take countermeasures, Sychyov added.
