The Buckle Inc., a clothier that operates more than 450 stores in 44 states in North America, disclosed Friday that its retail locations were hit by malicious software designed to steal customer credit card data. In a notice to customers published on The Buckle website Friday, the company writes, "A criminal entity accessed some guest credit card information following purchases at some of our retail stores."
The Buckle’s statement says the breach went undetected from Oct. 28, 2016 to April 14. The company recommends customers look through their account statements and credit reports closely and report any fraudulent activity to their bank or credit card company.
For the second time this month, Google has removed Android apps from its Google Play marketplace. Google did so after a security researcher found the apps contained code that laid the groundwork for attackers to take administrative "root" control of infected devices.
Ztorg malware bypassed Google's malware checks almost 100 times since September last year, and the malware family is best known for gaining 'root' privileges of infected devices to completely control them. Ztorg apps like Privacy Lock and a false Pokemon Go guide raked in huge download numbers before they were recognized as malicious and deleted from Google Play.
