VISA warns for Flokibot Spear Phishing Infections

So, it looks like a new malware variant identified as “Flokibot” is hitting the Caribbean and LATAM. The malware is focused on point-of-sale (PoS) devices and, like so many other types of malware, is being spread predominantly by phishing email. I will be personally volunteering to go look at this threat, especially in the Caribbean, on behalf of my company. It may take a while to investigate. You know, weeks, maybe months…
