Indonesian police joined forces with Interpol to crack down on hackers who stole payment card information from customers of hundreds of hacked online stores.
The group members were under strong suspicion of belonging to a MageCart group. If so, it would mark the first arrests of a Magecart group.
About operation 'Night Fury'?
The collaboration between the Indonesian cyber police, the Interpol's ASEAN Desk, and Singapore-based Group-IB led to the arrest of three people last month, this operation was dubbed as the name "Night Fury."
Claims and clues
As per reports, and as also claimed by some cybersecurity researchers, the group could be the members of ‘GetBilling’ group.
One of the attackers even admitted (on camera) to injecting web skimmers into compromised shops since 2017, and revealed that the targets were chosen at random.
How was ‘GetBilling’ operating?
More than hundreds of web stores suffered.
Key-notes from the investigation
Group-IB has been tracking the GetBilling script since 2018.
Experts were said to have experienced similar cyberattacks linked to the same online infrastructure even after the arrests of three people.
