According to the Malwarebytes report, after a long break, Magecart attacks continued and became more secretive. Not only small and medium-sized businesses are under threat: major brands (British Airways, Newegg and Ticketmaster) have already become victims of Magecart cyber attacks.
Magecart attacks are difficult to track, as some campaigns are carried out covertly on the server side, since it is easier for scanning tools to detect an attack on the client side.
“If the Magecart operator decides to switch its operations exclusively to the server side, then most companies will immediately lose the ability to detect a malicious campaign”, — said Malware Bytes researcher Jerome Segura.
Recall that a recently launched carding site called “BidenCash” sells credit card data and information about their owners for 15 cents. Also, to
attract an audience, administrators distribute personal data of millions
of users for free.
