By Jim Finkle 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 FirstWatch disclosed the attacks on Thursday on its website.
