Magecart Hackers Inject iFrame Skimmers in 19 Sites to Steal Payment Data

Apr 02, 2020
Cybersecurity researchers today uncovered an ongoing new Magecart skimmer campaign that so far has successfully compromised at least 19 different e-commerce websites to steal payment card details of their customers. According to a report published today and shared with The Hacker News, RiskIQ researchers spotted a new digital skimmer, dubbed " MakeFrame ," that injects HTML iframes into web-pages to phish payment data. MakeFrame attacks have been attributed to Magecart Group 7 for its approach of using the compromised sites to host the skimming code, load the skimmer on other compromised websites, and siphon off the stolen data.

Magecart, which is in the news a lot lately, is an umbrella term given to 12 different cyber criminal groups that are specialized in secretly implanting a special piece of code on compromised e-commerce sites with an intent to steal payment card details of their customers. The malicious code—well known as JS sniffers, JavaScript sniffers, or online credit card skimmers—has been designed to intercept users' input on compromised websites to steal customers' bank card numbers, names, addresses, login details, and passwords in real time. Magecart made headlines last year after cybercriminals conducted several high-profile heists involving major companies including British Airways , Ticketmaster , and Newegg , with online bedding retailers MyPillow and Amerisleep being recent victims of these attacks. The initial success of these attacks alread

6 Ways to Simplify SaaS Identity Governance

Feb 21, 2024SaaS Security / Identity Management
With SaaS applications now making up the vast majority of technology used by employees in most organizations, tasks related to identity governance need to happen across a myriad of individual SaaS apps. This presents a huge challenge for centralized IT teams who are ultimately held responsible for managing and securing app access, but can't possibly become experts in the nuances of the native security settings and access controls for hundreds (or thousands) of apps. And, even if they could, the sheer volume of tasks would easily bury them. Modern IT teams need a way to orchestrate and govern SaaS identity governance by engaging the application owners in the business who are most familiar with how the tool is used, and who needs what type of access.  Nudge Security is a  SaaS security and governance solution  that can help you do just that, with automated workflows to save time and make the process manageable at scale. Read on to learn how it works. 1 . Discover all SaaS apps used b
