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.
It’s the latest in a series of attacks by Magecart, an umbrella term for eight different hacking groups, all of which are focused on stealing credit card numbers for financial gain.
Hackers associated with Magecart tactics have hit many high profile websites in the past few years, including NutriBullet, Olympics ticket reselling websites, Macy’s, Ticketmaster, British Airways, consumer electronics giant Newegg, and many other e-commerce platforms.
