Global gas station fraud stopped in Russia

8 October 2013, by — admin ()

azsIt would sound like pure madness just a few years ago, but appears to be a reality nowadays. A group of Russian criminals successfully hacked a network of fully automated gas stations with a purpose of unlawful enrichment.

Special modules were found at dozens of gas stations owned by major oil companies that stole a few liters of gas from each client and sent them to a separate tank. This high-tech “bugs” were controlled remotely via devices disguised as regular calculators.

Gas station owners were not involved in this fraud and the police suspect former employees who had access to and knowledge of all hardware and software systems of these stations.

The revenue generated from this scheme is estimated in millions of rubles and was shared between all members of the group. The police believe that similar devices may still be installed at gas stations across the country and is currently conducting a thorough inspection with the help of security services of the oil companies.
