The cybercriminal responsible for the Heartland Payment Systems breach has been identified by the Secret Service with the hacker’s location “pinpointed” outside of North America.

According to the trade publication Storefront Backtalk, the investigation has been turned over to the U.S. Department of Justice.
On Friday, a spokesman for the company said the malware attack came from a “sophisticated bug,” SCMagazineus.com reports. [MXLogic]
