March 23, Softpedia – (International) New point-of-sale malware PoSeidon exfiltrates card data to Russian domains. Security researchers from Cisco Systems’ Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group discovered that cybercriminals are using a new point-of-sale (PoS) malware family dubbed PoSeidon that infects systems via a binary file and uses a memory scraping technique to retrieve and clone Discover, American Express, MasterCard, and Visa card information before delivering it to command and control (C&C) servers in Russia. The malware contains routines to ensure persistence regardless of restart or user log-off. Source

March 23, Softpedia – (International) CryptoWall ransomware also adds infostealer to compromised systems. Security researchers at Trend Micro discovered that the latest version of the CryptoWall ransomware contains the Fareit infostealer which collects credentials from programs including email clients, Web browsers, file transfer protocol (FTP) clients, and digital currency wallets. The malware is delivered via an archived JavaScript attachment in an email claiming to deliver a resume that connects to command and control (C&C) servers to download JPG images as a ploy to bypass intrusion detection systems (IDS).
