New Point-of-Sale Malware Steals Credit Card Data via DNS Queries

Cybercriminals are becoming more adept, innovative, and stealthy with each passing day. They are now adopting more clandestine techniques that come with limitless attack vectors and are harder to detect.

A new strain of malware has now been discovered that relies on a unique technique to steal payment card information from point-of-sale (PoS) systems.

Since the new POS malware relies upon User Datagram Protocol (UDP) DNS traffic for the exfiltration of credit card information, security researchers at Forcepoint Labs, who have uncovered the malware, dubbed it UDPoS.
