The surprising way two 14-year-olds cracked an ATM's security

Two Manitoba teens on a lunch break from school just proved that ATM security isn't all it's cracked up to be - and they didn't even have to use a sneaky ATM skimmer.

Instead, they used something much simpler to break into a Bank of Montreal ATM: the owner's manual.

I'm not joking. They looked up the owner's manual online, found the ATM's default password and put it in the machine. In seconds, they had full access to the ATM transaction log, how much money it had and other sensitive information.

Yep, the bank had never changed the ATM default password. Comforting, isn't it?

This is where the story gets heartwarming.
