Although we wouldn't expect to find the latest release of Photoshop on your neighborhood ATM, it's not so far fetched to think that Paint would be left on a Windows-based ATM. We've seen a recent boost in cash machine hacking of late, and while this latest attempt doesn't siphon illegal coinage out of the slot, it does make for quite a laugh. Joining the pitiful array of other Windows-powered mishaps, a sharp cameraphone-toting individual spotted a local ATM that had a beautifully hand-crafted Paint message on the front screen in place of the typical "Insert your card to begin transaction," and while we've already said too much about a picture that speaks a million words, be sure to click on through to see how accessing an ATM's start menu can lead to all sorts of mischievous mayhem.
