UPS Store tills infected by Malware in the US

UPS Store tills in the US are infected by debit and credit-card-reading malware in 51 of its branches. [1] UPS says the security breach may have exposed credit and debit card data at the affected stores between January 20, 2014 and August 11, 2014. As many as 100,000 transactions may have been snooped on, we're told, out of the millions normally running through the UPS network.

US-CERT has been warning about point-of-sale vulnerabilities for some time now. An advisory was released on January regarding Malware Targeting Point of Sale Systems [2]. 

The only way businesses could prevent carder raids is to look into adapting point-to-point encryption (P2PE).
