2015/04/30

Securityweek - (International) A Trend Micro report warned that point-of-sale (PoS) malware dubbed RawPOS that has been around since 2008 has reemerged and is being utilized by attackers to target customers of resorts, hotels, and casinos in the U.S. and abroad. RawPOS supports several PoS applications that are capable of targeting multiple software programs and can be specifically generated for the targeted environment, making it difficult to protect systems against the malware.
