Update - The Microsoft Windows Embedded December 2008 Updates included MS08-067 - KB 958644 Vulnerability in Server service could allow remote code execution, others and "security updates that were released from July onwards that are now available for (the) two newest versions of the product". Thanks for the pointer David!

It's been two years since I worked there, but I used to work for a bank. The older ATMs ran Windows XP-E and were known to get infected with Blaster before we installed a centrally managed firewall on them (Sygate, what Diebold supported). I don't know how many ATMs are still vulnerable, but there you go. They were being upgraded to new models that ran Windows XP Pro when I left; regular XP was much easier to keep patched (we had a Windows Update Server specifically for the ATMs).
