Krebsonsecurity.com is reporting that a Russian organized cybercrime syndicate has compromised MICROS point-of-sale support portal. Oracle responded that they had “detected and addressed malicious code in certain legacy MICROS systems”. The hackers placed malicious code on the MICROS support portal and captured customers usernames and passwords when they logged in. Its reported that over 700 systems have been infected.
Oracle will force all support accounts on the MICROS portal to do a password reset, adding “We also recommend that you change the password for any account that was used by a MICROS representative to access your on-premises systems.”
Security issues like this may prompt Oracle customers to review their Oracle annual support entitlement and cost.
