Dang, that's production grade kit, which means there is a lot of those things out there.

I'm not paranoid, they really ARE out to get you.

I generally use ATMs at branches of the bank where I have my account, so I'd spot just about any change there. But when traveling and using "strange" ATMs? Nope. That one would probably get me.

If you expect the world to treat you fair and right because you play by the rules makes about as much sense as the vegetarian who feels safe in the jungle. Plenty of sophisticated opportunistic predators roaming these days, be careful out there.
