Quotes

The hackers "used advanced evasion techniques - techniques which either erase or hide the footprints of malware - to avoid detection by anti-malware programs and plug-ins" Davis said in a blog
"The fourth quarter of 2013 will be remembered as the period when cybercrime became 'real' for more people than ever before" said Vincent Weafer, senior vice president for McAfee Labs
...using the name 'rome0' is well established in the underground carding scene," explained Dave Loftus, security research analyst at Arbor Networks. "While his or her true identity is unknown, we believe he or she may reside in France based on information obtained from multiple carding forums. We [also] have seen Alina, Project Hook, Dexter, VSkimmer, and JackPos point-of-sale malware used by someone operating under the name 'Rome0'. It's still unclear if this is the same individual active on underground forums or an imposter."
