A team of Russian security experts have hacked a cash machine to play Angry Birds.

The Positive Technologies team demonstrated the technique in a video.

At first the researcher withdraws cash normally, before a long press on the touchscreen brings up a Windows menu.

From there it's simple to launch Internet Explorer and engage in a quick game of fire-the-avian.

The team did not say how they pulled off the hack, but said they were able to take account numbers and expiry dates as well as play games.
