According to security journalist Brian Krebs, the word Rescator was found in the source code of Kaptoxa, the memory-scraping malware used in the electronic point of sale (POS) attack which compromised the payment data of as many as 70 million Target customers in 2013. At this time it is unclear what the word Rescator means, although Krebs reports it may be online identity of someone who knows who is responsible for the data theft at Target.
