A roundup of the latest cybersecurity news for the week of August 19–25, including Magecart attacks on poker software, a new Bluetooth vulnerability, continuing ransomware attacks on US cities, Bitcoin sextortion, and a look back at one researcher’s DEF CON experience.
This blog post details the curious case of a web skimmer encountered in a poker application.
Despite the heat, criminals are hard at work stealing credit card data from unaware shoppers. July marks a notable increase in web skimmer attacks over previous months.
We take a look into a Magecart group’s web skimming activities, which are relying on a bulletproof-friendly host in battle-scarred Luhansk, Ukraine to provide cover for their activities, safe from the reach of law enforcement and the security community.
Even e-commerce sites that do not take payment information themselves can be abused by crooks. In this post, we show how a web skimmer is able to inject an artificial iframe into the checkout page to prompt users for their credit card information. Victims will only realize something’s not right when they are redirected to the real (and external) payment form.
Magecart threat actors upload their skimming code onto GitHub in the latest attack against Magento websites.
E-commerce sites are a hot commodity these days. We dig into how compromised PCs are helping to hack into them to inject skimmers, whether via vulnerabilities in the websites themselves or through a new malware we discovered gaining entry via brute force.
