Data Breach At Oracle’s MICROS Point-of-Sale Division

It looks as though Oracle’s MICROS point-of-sale terminals support website was hijacked by a Russian cybercrime syndicate. According to Krebs on Security, once the malicious code was in place, the crooks stole all the username and passwords of people logged onto the MICROS support website.

A Russian organized cybercrime group known for hacking into banks and retailers appears to have breached hundreds of computer systems at software giant Oracle Corp., KrebsOnSecurity has learned. More alarmingly, the attackers have compromised a customer support portal for companies using Oracle’s MICROS point-of-sale credit card payment systems.
