Kasidet DDOSing bot adds credit card scraping capabilities

2015/09/25

Softpedia - (International) Security researchers from TrendMicro discovered a new version of the Kasidet/Neutrino distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) bot, which as of March added support for scraping a device's point-of-sale (PoS) random access memory (RAM). The bot's command-and-control (C&C) server also attempts to evade mitigation by sending "404 not found" errors to make it appear that it is not working properly.
