    MadAdsMedia, a US-based web advertising network, was compromised by cybercriminals to lead the visitors of sites that use their advertising platform to Adobe Flash exploits delivered by the Nuclear Exploit Kit. Up to 12,500 users per day may have been affected by this threat; three countries account for more than half of the hits: Japan, the United States, and Australia. Figure 1. This attack was first seen in April, although at relatively low traffic levels. The number of users at risk grew significantly as May ...

    We have been able to identify a new point-of-sale (PoS) malware family that has affected more than 100 victim organizations in Brazil. We have dubbed this new malware family as "FighterPOS". This name is derived from BRFighter, the tool used by the author to create this new threat. This one-man operation has been able to steal more than 22,000 unique credit card numbers. Its creator appears to have had a long history in carding, payment scams, and malware creation; in addition we ...
