What’s common between British Airways, Ticketmaster, Vision Direct and Newegg? They were all affected by Magecart cyberattack.
Ecommerce stores Small and Large have been attacked world wide by the malicious attacks targeting information customers enter in login details and payment forms.
These attacks can easily go on for days undetected - at British Airways, the attack remained undetected for fifteen days by which 380,000 customer payment card details had been affected. At Vision Direct, the payment card details of as many as 6,600 customers was found to been compromised. The personal data of 9,700 people was also compromised, sources add.
Surprisingly, these attacks could have been detected a lot earlier. “Customers have a right to shop across ecommerce stores with complete peace of mind. They would not like to be under a constant threat of their payment or other details being compromised.” says Kaartik Iyer, CEO of Infigic, a firm that provides end to end ecommerce website development solutions and ecommerce security.
“You can’t take security lightly or leave it to random checks. You’ve got to have a time-table behind it and you must stick to it” adds Iyer. Recalling an experience their client had, Iyer says Infigic had built into the system an auto-check every five minutes. That would quickly alert the system in case of an attack and minimize the damage, if any.
