Rutter’s store chain discloses security breach involving POS malware

Does anyone else see ‘POS’ and think of something other than ‘Point of Sale’?…:

US store chain Rutter’s disclosed a security breach today. The company says hackers gained access to its stores’ network system and planted malware that collected payment card details as they were being processed.

Stores in Pennsylvania and West Virginia were impacted, Rutter’s said today in a press release and a notice posted on its website.

For most locations, the malware was present between October 1, 2018 through May 29, 2019, however, for some stores, the infection timeline is different. See this page for details about the infection timeline of Rutter’s stores.

Rutter’s said the malware collected data from payment cards swiped through point-of-sale (POS) devices installed inside convenience stores and some of its fuel pumps.
