POS Malware
PCI DSS has become a "Toothless Bulldog", whereby the clients relationship with the Security companies directly impacts their indepedence and ability to offer meaningful security recommendations that the Retailers have to comply with. As a QSA if you put forward a stringent set of recommendations on improving POS security or other vital aspects such as end-to-end encryption and full network segmentation, you may well be looking for a new customer in the near-future, and those firms who bend to the commercial pressures will continue to prosper.

Retailers are not being forced by the card providers to fix the underlying issues with POS systems, ie, old unsupported software, poor network architecture and monitoring, a lack of Virus protection, insecure POS software, and please dont let me comment on the general state of the AV Industry!

Retailers don't prioriotize more secure POS systems and Banks don't want to protect consumers because this will affect Shareholder returns. These factors are culminating in the losses of card data we see on this site week in and week out, like any skilled adversary they aim for the weakest link.

Discover alerted about this in March
Known MD5 hashes are listed in this blog post: j.mp/1o36s2E

2 of the 3 hashes from the post are listed in this Data Security Alert posted by Discover in March along with other useful indicators of compromise. They also stress the common entry point of poorly secured remote access solutions and provide the typical advice on how not to be a victim See j.mp/1unYs1i

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
