MAGECART HACKERS STRIKE AGAIN — IS THIS HIGH TIME TO MIGRATE TO A SECURE PLATFORM?

Around 2,000 Ecommerce sites hit with a new attack targeted those sites running on Magento version 1, a version of the e-commerce software that is past end-of-life. The cyberattacks in which hackers implant malicious computer code into websites and third-party suppliers of digital systems to steal credit card info as people enter it at a checkout page are known as MageCart.

The classic MageCart attack on the 2nd weekend of September 2020 is considered as the largest ever automated MageCart hack. Sansec researchers are the ones that discovered the hacks and stated that the incidents are still under investigation.

“The massive scope of this weekend’s incident illustrates increased sophistication and profitability of web skimming,” the Sansec threat research team said. “Criminals have been increasingly automating their hacking operations to run web skimming schemes on as many stores as possible.”

A new attack method was used to gain server access to all targeted stores because many of these victimized stores have no history of security incidents. Although Sansec is still investigating the method of infiltration, the firm suggests the attack may be related to a recent Magento 1 zero-day exploit that was put up for sale a few weeks ago.
Alarmingly, more than 95,000 sites still use Magento 1, and store owners are advised to upgrade to the up-to-date Magento 2 or any other secure eCommerce platforms.
