(AUS) Pizza boy ATM hacker hits paydirt

A young pizza shop worker and computer whiz withdrew nearly $30,000 in cash in one hour after using an ATM manual and information gleaned from the internet to hack into automatic teller machines in central Queensland.

Brian Sommer stumbled across the system in August 2007 which could cheat ATMs by changing their computer hard drive settings, but came unstuck after using his mother's, his girlfriend's and his own credit cards to access the machines at a Bundaberg service station and in Hervey Bay.
