Malware discovered on Forever 21 PoS devices

Fashion retailer Forever 21 found malware implanted on its point-of-sale systems (PoS) devices during an investigation into a 2017 data breach.

The malware was used to search for payment card data processed through the devices, including card numbers, expiration dates and internal verification codes.

Installed on the affected devices between April and November 2017, some locations only experienced breaches for days. Others, however, were affected for months.

So far, the breach has only affected stores in the U.S., and cards used on the company’s website aren’t at risk.
