Definition Edit

A point of sale (POS) intrusion is a remote attack against the environments where retail transactions are conducted, specifically where card-present purchases are made.

Overview Edit

The industries most commonly affected by POS intrusions are of no surprise: restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, and other brick-and-mortar retailers are all potential targets.

From an attack pattern standpoint, the most simplistic narrative is as follows: compromise the POS device, install malware to collect magnetic stripe data in process, retrieve data, and cash in.
