Yesterday, Oracle notified its customer base that Oracle Security had detected and addressed malicious code in certain legacy MICROS systems.

According to the notification, Oracle said its Corporate Network and its other cloud services and offerings are not affected by this malicious code. “To prevent a recurrence, Oracle implemented additional security measures for the legacy MICROS systems. Consistent with standard security remediation protocols, Oracle is requiring MICROS customers to change passwords for all MICROS accounts.”

The statement also reports that payment card data is encrypted both at rest and in transit in the MICROS hosted environment.

Information for customers on how to change passwords has been published on the My Oracle Support network. Customers are asked to refer to My Oracle Support (Doc ID 2165744.1) for additional information. Additional questions or concerns, can contact MICROS Support at http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/acquisitions/micros/support/index.htm
