Researchers at Arbor Networks have spotted a new family of #pointofsale #malware
that ties several techniques together in an effort to steal information.
The malware, which has been named Soraya, uses a mix of memory scraping techniques similar to the Dexter malware while intercepting form data sent from web browsers like the Zeus Trojan.
According to Arbor Networks, thousands of #paymentcards
have been compromised by the malware.
65.16 percent of the compromised payment cards were issued by financial institutions located in the U.S.
Financial institutions in Costa Rica were also heavily affected, and were tied to 21.45 percent of the cards.
Debit cards were the most prevalent, accounting for nearly 64 percent of the stolen cards. The rest were credit cards.
