The Government Savings Bank (GSB) has reported its ATM vendor, NCR (Thailand), has developed a program that can protect ATMs from malware similar to that which affected GSB cash machines last month.



NCR was ready to deliver the software to the bank, GSB chief executive officer Chatchai Payuhanaveechai said.
He added that NCR had 60 teams ready to install the program at GSB ATMs nationwide at a rate of 200 ATMs per day.
Chatchai said GSB planned that all ATMs affected by malware, which had been offline temporarily, would be able to resume operations by next month. 
NCR also plans to distribute the anti-malware software to its other customers globally. 
GSB recently shut down more than 3,000 ATMs in six provinces after many were found to have been infected by malware while the bank sought technical help from NCR.
