Banks Pay Microsoft Big for Securing Windows XP ATMs

It looks like Microsoft wins either way with the banking industry concerning the status of Windows XP operating the ATM’s. It’s always been a ‘pay me now or pay me later’ situation for Microsoft and it’s looking like the ‘later’ portion of that payoff is about to go into full swing.

They’ve also been very publicly running the XP doomsday clock since 2011. All that time and countless repeated urgings, apparently, still didn’t convince most banks that it was worth upgrading.
