Hacking POS Systems



Congratulations to our team at Security Compass for being accepted to present at TASK (Toronto Area Security Klatch) on November 30th at 6:00 PM. Jackson Thuraisamy and Jason Tran will be speaking about Hacking POS Systems. Here is an abstract of what they will be speaking about:

Hacking POS Systems

Hackers try to find the easiest ways to achieve the most impact. When it comes to credit card fraud, compromising Point of Sale (PoS) systems is the latest trend. The presenters will share their experience on how attackers can exploit both technical and policy gaps to breach organizations. This talk will cover approaches to physical security, kiosk breakouts, and the extraction of sensitive data. It’s laced with real-life examples, including a detailed discussion of recently disclosed critical vulnerabilities in Oracle’s hotel management platform.

For more information surrounding the disclosed critical vulnerabilities in Oracle OPERA, keep on the lookout later this month for Jackson’s post about it. His diagram for Sabotaging Cryptosystems is a great read until the post arrives.
