New Point-of-Sale Malware LockPoS Hitches Ride with FlokiBot
Botnets distributing FlokiBot point-of-sale malware have awoken from months of slumber and are back in business spewing a new malware dubbed LockPoS. Researchers say the malware is still flying under the radar of many antivirus and intrusion detection systems because it’s so new.
Currently, LockPoS is believed to be targeting Brazilian-based companies, according to Arbor Networks, a division of NetScout. Researchers there said they recently noticed the PoS malware after observing slumbering command-and-control servers used by FlokiBot coming back online.
