Point of sale malware campaign targets hospitality and entertainment businesses
#1
Quote:A newly-discovered cyber crime campaign is targeting restaurants, cinemas and other retailers in the entertainment and hospitality industries with point-of-sale (POS) malware in an ongoing effort to steal credit card information from customers.
 
Known as DMSniff, the malware is thought to have been active since 2016, having managed to fly under the radar until now, having been uncovered and detailed by researchers at cyber security intelligence company Flashpoint. 
 
The key targets of DMSniff are small and medium sized companies which rely heavily on card transactions, such as the food, hospitality and entertainment industries.
 
What sets DMSniff apart from other forms of POS malware is how it uses a domain generation algorithm (DGA) to create command-and-control domains on the fly, helping it to resist takedowns and bypass simple blocking mechanisms. 
 
This is beneficial for the attackers because if domains are taken down by law enforcement or hosting providers, the malware can still communicate with the compromised POS device - and continue to transfer stolen data.
 
In total, researchers have uncovered 11 variants of the DGA – when such techniques are rarely seen in POS malware campaigns, potentially pointing to it being work of a knowledgeable cyber criminal operation.
