Unknown hackers have compromised Prague-based General Bytes' Bitcoin ATMs by exploiting a zero-day software vulnerability in the machines to sling cryptocurrencies from customer accounts.

The operators have since confirmed that $16,000 USD in digital assets was swiped in the hack.

General Bytes has urged customers to refrain from using its General Bytes ATM servers until it updates its server to patch releases 20220725.22, and 20220531.38 for customers running on 20220531.

General Bytes’ security advisory team stated in the blog that the hackers conducted a zero-day vulnerability attack to gain access to the company’s CAS UI and extract the funds to the attacker's address.
