    An ATM machine at a bar called El Ocho de Blanco in Puerto Rico has caused an uproar among the island’s LGBT community after a customer received a receipt from the machine with the words “we hate fags” written in English across the bottom.

    Probably a joke or hoax, but honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was serious.

    The ATM machine company released a statement saying they apologized for the apparent breach in security, and they would upgrade all of their machines. The bar also apologized and said they were not directly to blame.

    It's interesting that they're saying it was a "breach in security." You'd think money would've been stolen if that were really the case. It seems more likely that it was an inside job.

    It's possible to externally hack these things. If they were able to upen the machine they might have, but what was done here can be done through modified cards and pass codes... Apparently. I'm not an expert.
