Hackers steal a huge amount of consumer data from credit card payment terminals. A trade group presses lawmakers to prioritize cyber in the NDAA. And most election websites aren't taking a basic security precaution. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 24.

Exclusive: Point-of-sale malware infects 212 devices

Cybercriminals used a pair of point-of-sale malware variants to steal more than 167,000 payment records from 212 infected devices mostly in the U.S., according to researchers with Group-IB. It’s not clear who is behind the attack or whether they sold or used the pilfered card data. But researchers estimate the information could be worth more than $3.3 million, highlighting how malware designed to steal information from credit card payment terminals remains a troubling concern. AJ Vicens reports.

Trade group wants cyber focus in NDAA

The Alliance for Digital Innovation has called on lawmakers to prioritize five key areas including cloud migration, cybersecurity and acquisition reform as they work to enact the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2023. In particular, the trade group said it supported the inclusion of bill language that would require the Department of Defense to produce a study on costs associated with underperforming software and other IT. John Hewitt Jones writes in FedScoop.


75% of election websites aren't on .gov domains

A report published last week found that just one in four local election offices have moved their websites to the federally administered .gov domain, even as the Department of Homeland Security has made site registrations free. Of more than 7,000 websites reviewed, just 1,747 ended in .gov, according to the study by the Center for Democracy & Technology. The low rate of .gov adoption, the report’s authors wrote, “creates an opportunity for bad actors to create fake election websites and spread disinformation,” something the FBI and CISA warned about earlier this month. Benjamin Freed has the story in StateScoop.
