VASLUI---Valentin Boanta, sitting in
his jail cell, proudly explains the device
he has invented which, he says, could
make the world s ATMs impregnable
even to tech-savvy criminals like him-
Boanta, 33, is six months into a five-
year sentence for supplying gadgets an
organised crime gang used to conceal
ATM skimmers, which can copy data
from an unsuspecting ATM user s card
so a clone can be created.
He said he had started to make the
devices for the sheer excitement of it and
denies ever planning to use them himself,
saying he only sold them to others.
Boanta says his arrest in 2009 and trial
brought contrition, as he realised the
Penitent hacker aims to protect world's ATMs
impact of his actions and felt an
urge to make amends. It also brought
the former industrial design student
a flash of technical inspiration.
It was during his trial that he got
down to work. The stage for Boanta s
product pitch these days is the book-
lined cell in the northeastern Roman-
ian town of Vaslui he shares with
five pickpockets and burglars.
"All ATMs have ageing designs
so they are prone to vulnerability,
they are a very weak side of the
banking industry," he said.
"Every ATM can be penetrated
through a skimming crime. My
security solution, SRS, makes an
Boanta says his "Secure Revolving
System-SRS" can be installed in any
ATM. It allows the bank card to be
inserted longer side first and then
rotates it to prevent skimmers being
able to lock on to the magnetic data
strip. The system returns the card
to its user with a reverse rotation.
Outwardly it is a trapezoidal
metallic box around six-inches long
with the card slot in the middle.
The SRS, funded and developed
by a technology firm near Bucharest
called MB Telecom, is patented and
won an award this year at the Inter-
national Exhibition of Inventions in
Geneva. The inventor and company
are not yet saying how much it will
cost, but insist it will be available
Romania has a deep well of tech-
nical expertise stemming from the
time of communist dictator Nicolae
Ceausescu, who backed computer
research and technical education.
Romanian hackers stole about $1
billion from US accounts in 2012,
according to the US embassy in
Bucharest. A report by Verizon said
Romania was the world s second-
biggest hacking centre after China.
The FBI has even set up an office
in Romania and helped to train spe-
cialist police agents. (Reuters)
