KWI - Managed Services for Specialty Retailers

January 11, 2013

It has come to KWI's attention that Visa Data Security has announced a security risk which may affect Microsoft Windows Systems, as a precaution Visa recommends that clients, merchants, and agents review this list of malicious domains and IP addresses, listed below, to monitor and block them from their firewall rule sets. Prior to blocking IPs and domains, Visa also recommends that entities perform due diligence and ensure that blocking will not cause connectivity issues.

All KWI clients are urged to immediately examine their network configurations for compliance to the KWI whitepaper specifications and address any gaps as soon as possible. Specifically, the section titled "Standardized Store/Internet Configuration Goals" which recommends that your store firewall be configured to only allow inbound traffic from known and trusted sources.

The KWI White Paper can be found on site in the FAQ section on the lower right hand corner of the home page under Standard KWI Forms and Manuals.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely Yours,
