Magneto Security Patch Reminder
Businesses using Magneto, a popular ecommerce platform, are reminded to deploy a security patch to handle several critical and high vulnerabilities. Merchants who have not deployed security patch SUPEE-7405 (issued in January 2016) as required by PCI standards, are vulnerable to remote exploits that can compromise account data.
PoSeidon POS Risk
Visa is issuing a new warning about PoSeidon POS malware. In March 2016, PoSeidon malware was modified to include a persistence monitoring capability. If it is not properly removed, PoSeidon’s monitor process waits two (2) minutes and re-infects the system.
