ATTACK of the Windows ZOMBIES on point-of-sale terminals

2014/07/09

The Register - (International) Researchers with IntelCrawler identified and infiltrated a Windows botnet known as @-Brt that can be used in brute force attacks against point-of-sale (POS) systems and their associated networks. The botnet targets Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) servers with weak or default passwords in order to grant attackers the access needed to plant payment card data stealing malware.
