ATMs Will Still Run Windows XP with Increased Security

With the end of support looming for Windows XP, we’re guessing it’s really a bad time to remind bank ATM customers that the majority of the world’s ATMs are still running XP; the same XP that will be losing all support, including security updates, in several weeks.
