PoS systems are the new compromise cash cow...

The Point of Sale (PoS) station is probably one of the most targeted devices in recent years. There are multiple reasons for this: older operating systems, the need to POS users to have admin rights, generic logons for the “windows” accounts, and more. Most PoS softare is very resistant to attempts to properly secure it including getting all sorts of bent out of shape when you try to apply restrictive security policies to them. I have even seen them stop working because the removable drive mount option is removed from USB ports using a group policy object.
