Over 10,000 websites and applications are vulnerable to Magecart, a digital supply chain attack used to steal login credentials, private information and credit card data without a trace
Data skimming technique has become an unstoppable threat
KIRKLAND, Wash. and TEL AVIV, Israel, November 10, 2021 – Cyberpion, a cybersecurity pioneer in external attack surface management (EASM), today presented research at Black Hat Europe 2021 revealing that some of the world’s largest companies across retail, banking, healthcare, energy and many other sectors, including Fortune 500, Global 500 and governments are failing to prevent Magecart attacks.
The research analyzed more than 30,000 Magecart vulnerabilities over the last two years and found significant weaknesses in modern security platforms and processes to identify and mitigate Magecart exploits. More than 10,000 Magecart vulnerabilities are still active. There were also severe lapses in enterprises disclosing security vulnerabilities or exploits occurring along their digital supply chains to their customers, ultimately placing all connected organizations at severe risk of a critical breach.
Companies can discover if they have been the target of a Magecart attack or affected by Magecart vulnerability by visiting this website.
“Our conclusion from the analysis is that as of today, organizations fail to face Magecart threats and detect the vulnerabilities and exploits that hackers leverage to conduct these attacks,” said Cyberpion CEO Nethanel Gelernter. Victims are often the last to know as it’s only later that organizations find that their data was sold or exploited, with the problem extending beyond any single vendor or client relationship. For enterprises in particular, Magecart attacks pose a significant challenge because it is problematic to set up a solution at scale.”
Highlights from the research include:
Cyberpion solves the rising cybersecurity challenge of understanding the risks and vulnerabilities of your connected online assets that form an external attack surface. Knowing how your organization is vulnerable, where those threats come from, and what infrastructures are at risk, is critical to preventing an attack before it happens. Cyberpion helps organizations mitigate these advanced threats by continuously monitoring, discovering, and assessing the threat vectors present throughout online ecosystems that exist outside the traditional security perimeter. With a research and development team based in Israel, the company is funded by leading cybersecurity venture capitalists. To learn more, visit cyberpion.com.
