PCI Malware Defense
Malware that is used to initiate credit card data security breaches is configured to gain access to certain Point-of-Sale (POS) payment applications responsible for processing authorization data, which includes full magnetic-stripe data.
When this information is processed, the payment application decrypts the trans-action from the cash register/point-of-sale and stores the authorization data in random access memory (RAM).
