Cyber Attack Thwarted by Active Agent

During a routine PCI Security Scan, a service that is included with most merchant accounts, we found a device plugged into a merchants network.  After reviewing the scans FAILURE REPORT and making calls to other experts to blindly verify what we had found,  I contacted the merchant to inform them that something was plugged into their network that had the capability of streaming data.  The merchant and I discussed some possibilities until we found an older computer with an old vulnerable operating system on it,  This was causing the merchant to fail the scan.  The computer was then simply unplugged from the network and disaster was potentially avoided.  This is the service that merchants should expect from their agents.  Private agents like Allcard USA are there to assist with Price, Technology, and Service for merchants desiring the very best in the industry.
