20 Sep Hackers Steal Financial Info from US Gov’t Payment Portals
Cybersecurity firm FireEye reported yesterday that an unknown hacking group has broken into the servers of Click2Gov, a self-hosted payments solution, and stole credit card details.
Click2Gov servers can be found installed in both metropolitan cities and small towns. The Superion product is sold to US governments that use it for payments such as utility bills, permits, and fines.
FireEye researchers say that the malware the hackers installed may have been active for about a year. They also discovered two new strains of malware called Firealarm and Spotlight.
Click2Gov portals had already been attacked a number of times in the past and it is said that FireEye’s new report just serves as a confirmation of the hacker’s methods.
