New Malware Targeting Point of Sales Systems

Just in time for the holiday season.  New malware has been detected in the wild over the past few months that is specifically targeting Point of Sales (POS) systems.  Called Dexter it is already mutating into a new variant called StarDust to create a BotNet to infect POS systems.

It is not clear how Dexter infects the targeted POS.  What is known is the majority of the targets are using Microsoft Windows back end servers.
