Security firm Group-IB has identified a malware program called Dump Memory Grabber that can take debit and credit card data from point-of-sale (POS) terminals and ATMs. The researchers say that the program has already been used to steal data from clients of US banks including Chase, Capital One, Citibank, and Union Bank N.A. as well as from clients with Nordstrom-branded cards.

...Dump Memory Grabber uses FTP to pass card and account numbers, user names, and card expiry dates on to a control server that is most likely run by Russian attackers. Group-IB says that several hundred POS terminals and ATMs in the US have been infected with the program.
