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

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 attacks usually involve bad actors compromising a company's online store to siphon credit card numbers and account details of users who're making purchases on the infected site by placing malicious JavaScript skimmers on payment forms. It's the latest in a series of attacks by Magecart, an umbrella term for eight diffe

In a world that's growing increasingly digital, Magecart attacks have emerged as a key cybersecurity threat to e-commerce sites. 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

Code Keepers: Mastering Non-Human Identity Management

Code Keepers: Mastering Non-Human Identity Management
Apr 12, 2024DevSecOps / Identity Management
Identities now transcend human boundaries. Within each line of code and every API call lies a non-human identity. These entities act as programmatic access keys, enabling authentication and facilitating interactions among systems and services, which are essential for every API call, database query, or storage account access. As we depend on multi-factor authentication and passwords to safeguard human identities, a pressing question arises: How do we guarantee the security and integrity of these non-human counterparts? How do we authenticate, authorize, and regulate access for entities devoid of life but crucial for the functioning of critical systems? Let's break it down. The challenge Imagine a cloud-native application as a bustling metropolis of tiny neighborhoods known as microservices, all neatly packed into containers. These microservices function akin to diligent worker bees, each diligently performing its designated task, be it processing data, verifying credentials, or
