ATM Reprogrammed and stipped of cash

Wired has a story with a moral to it and the moral is change your passwords from time to time, especially if you are an ATM owner. The perpetrator of the crime used an ATM administrator password, which had never been changed from the default '123456', to reprogram the machine and access all of the cash inside. If that weren't bad enough, he came back the next day and did it again! The Triton ATM's user manual is apparently readily available online.
