Is your local ATM safe?

Is your ATM at risk? By now, I'm sure you are all aware that Microsoft will no longer offer security support to Windows XP.  Unfortunately, ATMs use that software and as of tomorrow time is running out.  


The larger banks have purchased necessary extensions but what about the smaller regional banks or CU? Definitely worth asking before you use your debit card for that $20.

Thanks Lexie I saw it on the news but it didn't sink in until reading it. My bank is a small local bank I'm definitely going to ask questions.
