The Magecart group -- known for its notorious credit card skimming attacks, makes headlines again. This time, it has found targeting websites of mattress companies MyPillow & Amerisleep. The security incident was uncovered and detailed by Yonathan Klijnsma of RiskIQ. With its continuously evolving tactics, the group has slowly been rising to dominate the cyberspace in 2019.
Why it matters - While the threat group earlier targeted large firms such as British Airways, Newegg, and others, it has now eyed smaller companies.
“Magecart has capitalized on the fact that the security controls of small companies who provide services to enhance the websites of global brands are far less developed than the security controls of the global brands themselves.” said Klijnsma in the blogpost.
