What is a Gas Attack?
A gas explosion attack is a method that involves a combustible gas, sometimes combined with oxygen, being injected in an ATM, whereupon the gas is ignited from a safe distance in order to break into the ATM’s vault. This entire scenario only takes a few minutes. Not every ATM gas attack is successful for the criminals. However, the damage to the ATM and surrounding buildings is enormous and gas attacks put people nearby at risk.
