dead-drop

<security>

A hijacked PC or server used to store personal data stolen by keyloggers, spyware or viruses, with the intention of passing it to someone who will search it for valuable information such as logins or credit card details. It is safer for the criminal to keep such data somewhere where it is unlikely to be traced back to them.
