Trend Labs documents a new Point-of-Sales Malware attack, which has surfaced during the 2014 holiday shopping season:


We are currently looking into a new point-of-sale (PoS) malware family detected as TSPY_POSLOGR.K, which is making the rounds just in time for this year’s holiday shopping weekend.   Around this time last year, the U.S. retailer Target suffered one of the largest data breaches in history in a targeted attack that used the BlackPOS malware, a PoS RAM scraper malware family. Cybercriminals gathered roughly 40 million credit and debit card numbers as well as 70 million personal records of Target shoppers. Home Depot also suffered recently from a data breach, which has so far cost the hardware mart more than $43 million in expenses to investigate the breach.
