Malware hunters from US security firm Forcepoint have stumbled across a new strain of Point of Sale (PoS) malware, the second such type of PoS malware that hides stolen credit/debit card information inside DNS requests.
The first PoS malware that was first seen employing this technique was a lesser known version of the NewPosThings PoS malware —named MULTIGRAIN—, discovered in April 2016 by fellow US cyber-security firm FireEye.
But while MULTIGRAIN had been used in real-world attacks, Forcepoint says it did not find any evidence suggesting this new strain of PoS malware —named UDPoS— has made any victims as of yet.
