500K Credit Card Numbers Stolen in Australian Hack

Half a Million credit card numbers have been hacked from a point-of-sale system in Australia by the same group responsible for the theft of 1.5 million credit card account numbers from Subway restaurants in the US.

In both cases, the syndicate captured credit card details using keyloggers installed within Point of Sale (POS) terminals and siphoned the data through an insecure open Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection.
