'ChewBacca' hackers targeted retailers in 11 countries
BOSTON (Reuters) - A cyber criminal ring targeting small retailers in 11 countries stole data on 49,000 payment cards using a malicious software known as "ChewBacca" before the operation was shut down, according to a cyber research firm.
RSA Firs**bleep**ch disclosed the attacks on Thursday on its website. It said the firm's researchers uncovered the ring, whose victims included small companies in the United States, Russia, Canada and Australia.
They managed to steal details from some 24 million payment card transactions over about two months, according to RSA.
