Definition - What does Blind Drop mean?
A blind drop is a hidden location where a malware program, Trojan or virus drops information gathered from a host. The automatically gathered data remains in that location until it is retrieved by the attacker. The data could be credit card or bank account details, usernames and passwords or any personal information the attacker may use to hack into the host's accounts. It is very hard to detect where data is coming from or where it is going, even if the location is discovered.
