Tranax Releases ATM Software
FREMONT, Calif.-ATM vendor Tranax Technologies announced the release of a new application software solution to help prevent unauthorized access to Tranax ATM terminals and operator menus.
The new system will require the end user to change the default master password before being allowed to bring the terminal "in service." The software solution also causes any alteration of cash denomination settings to erase the ATM's master keys, the unique 64-digit security numbers required for operation.
Tranax initiated the new security software in response to a breach of one of its systems at a gas station in Virginia Beach last summer.
