Magecart Attack Impacts More Than 10K Online Shoppers

One of the largest known Magecart campaigns to date took place over the weekend, with nearly 2,000 e-commerce sites hacked in an automated campaign that may be linked to a zero-day exploit. The attacks have impacted tens of thousands of customers, who had their credit-card and other information stolen, researchers said.

According to Sansec Threat Intelligence, online stores running Magento versions 1 and 2 are being targeted in a classic Magecart attack pattern, where e-commerce sites are hacked, either via a common vulnerability or stolen credentials. If a compromise is successful, merchant websites are then injected with a web skimmer, which surreptitiously exfiltrates personal and banking information entered by customers during the online checkout process.

The firm’s telemetry picked up “1904 distinct Magento stores with a unique keylogger (skimmer) on the checkout page,” the firm said in a posting on Monday. “On Friday, 10 stores got infected, then 1058 on Saturday, 603 on Sunday and 233 today….Most stores were running Magento version 1, which was announced end-of-life last June. However, some stores were running Magento 2.”

Experts Weigh in on E-Commerce Security Amid Snowballing Threats

The raging pandemic has forced many retailers to re-imagine their businesses, shifting from in-person to contactless interactions through online sales. This new socially distanced reality is colliding with the crush of an upcoming holiday shopping season, creating an unprecedented opportunity for cybercriminals to capitalize.

Magecart is just one of the more potent types of attacks to emerge in recent months. Over one September weekend alone, the group’s card-skimmer malware was launched against 2,000 online retailers, compromising more than 10,000 shoppers.

But experts are warning retailers not to focus only on one threat or on protecting one particular system. Increasingly, attacks are attempting to infiltrate systems from multiple entry points simultaneously, supercharged by bots and automation, and lured by flocks of unsuspecting newbie online shoppers.

In fact, new customer accounts make up 30 percent of current transactions, which is five times higher than pre-COVID, according to Forter’s recent fraud attack index.

With threat levels at historic highs, Threatpost gathered a panel of experts on retail e-commerce security to help sort through the rising threats – and how retailers can defend themselves, their reputations and their customer’s data.

Their prescription isn’t simple. Each suggested a wholistic approach which starts with the basics: Patching, encouraging strong passwords and strong, fundamental Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection.

Besides that, retailers need to understand their own operations first and foremost, gaining a transparent view into them and getting a firm handle on what “normal” looks like for each organization. It’s that critical baseline that will often trigger the first alert the site is under attack.

Industry-leading experts Robert Capps, NuData’s vice president of marketplace innovation; Allan Liska, intelligence analyst for Recorded Future; and Matt Wilson who leads product management for network and application security at Neustar all joined a live Threatpost Webinar event on Oct. 14 titled, “Retail Security: Magecart and the Rise of e-Commerce Threats.”

They offered an up-to-the-minute look at the retail threat landscape, including the application network layer and the evolving role of automation and bots (which are increasingly able to mimic human behavior to evade detection).

Other topics included loyalty programs, fraudsters who buy online and pick up merchandise in the store, the ways cybercriminals can turn an easy buck on unsuspecting retailers is always evolving and more.

Check out our experts’ critical insights on how to keep ahead in our video replay, below, followed by a lightly edited transcript of the event.

Transcript

Becky Bracken: Hello, everybody, and welcome to Threatpost’s Live webinar titled, Retail Security and the Rise of E-commerce. I’m Becky Bracken and I will be your host for today’s presentation.

Today, we’ve gathered a world-class panel of security experts who will discuss threats online to retailers, and we’re thrilled to have them join us.

The pandemic, as we all know, is created a bit of a perfect storm for retails security breaches, of all kinds.

It’s drastically accelerated the shift from shopping in a store to making even the most mundane purchases online. And I think pretty much once we were all on eBay, bidding on rolls of toilet paper, all sense flew out the window of us not being able to buy everyday stuff online.

In fact, new customer accounts make up 30 percent of current transactions online, which is five times higher than it was before the pandemic, according to Fortes recent fraud attack index.

Retailers have also had to cobble together entirely new chains of business, moving away from in-person to contactless transactions like delivery. And there are new models of buy online, pick up in store. But because they’re new, they’re pretty plum pickings for clever criminals trying to find their next hustle.

And now we’re headed into the holiday shopping season, which will add an entirely new level of chaos.
