So if your ATM has a vulnerability

How is it going to be exploited? Sure, if you break into the ATM's network, or open it up and attach something to a hidden USB port maybe then, but you might be able to leverage those attacks even without a vulnerability in the ATM's OS. It is getting into the ATM's network or USB port that's the security failure, not failure to patch a remote desktop exploit in the ATM.
