ModPipe Malware has a new module that siphons Credit Card Data

Cybersecurity researchers at Foregenix have discovered what appears to be a new module for the ModPipe malware, previously reported by ESET in November 2020. Alarmingly, this new module has the ability to siphon sensitive Track1 and Track2 data from payment systems, a featureset that had not previously been disclosed. Like the originally analysed and documented ModPipe, this module is most prevalent in the hospitality sector. This malware should be considered a high risk.
