This notice is to inform you of a potential compromise related to your PAX Terminal. 


CMS/Nexio was recently made aware of a potential investigation by the FBI of PAX Technology due to a number of cyberattacks in the U.S. and E.U. caused by Malware. To ensure the safety of our customers we are reaching out to everyone with PAX Technology equipment to inform them of this situation. Pax Technology is being investigated for establishing malware dropper and command-and-control locations with their physical terminals. We understand the investigation is still underway and limited information is currently available. CMS has no way to know if your POS or your customers’ information has been compromised. 


CMS/Nexio has reached out to our terminal vendors and they are not aware of any additional updates or information related to PAX Terminals.

 Due to global computer chip shortages, potential delays in obtaining different terminals may be significant. 

If your terminal is integrated into your Point Of Sale system, you may want to reach out to your POS vendor for additional information.
