Title

New POS Malware Abandons Stealth

Summary

There are two kinds of POS malware—there's kind that stealthily encrypts and exfiltrates stolen data, and then there's the kind that smashes and grabs. A new version of the FastPOS malware has chosen the latter approach, grabbing massive amounts of CC data, and sending it out to command and control servers in plain, unencrypted text. The reason this works? Most endpoint protection still doesn’t notice.
