The financially-motivated hacking group, FIN8, has returned after a two-year hiatus. According to researchers from Morphisec, the FIN8 group is now mainly targeting point-of-sale (PoS) systems used within the hotel industry. Customized malware, called ShellTea, is being installed on PoS systems via a spear-phishing campaign in order to steal payment information and other financial data. Many of the PoS machines being used by companies in the hotel industry have been found to be using older versions of Microsoft Windows 7, which increases their vulnerability to such attacks. This article continues to discuss the FIN8 hacking group in relation to its techniques, targets, and connections to other groups.
