Hackers compromising checkout process on retail sites, redirecting shoppers to phishing page
Hackers are compromising retail websites' e-commerce solutions in order to redirect unsuspecting shoppers to an online phishing form.
Here's a two-for-one deal that no retail customer wants: Researchers at Sucuri has uncovered a sampling of novel e-commerce attacks that combine the classic duplicity of phishing schemes with the insidiousness of malicious webpage redirects.
The compromise redirects purchasing customers to fake, phishing pages on third-party sites, at least some of which feature the domain name cwcargo.com. Shoppers think they are filling out a checkout form but are actually giving away their personal information, credit card data and Paypal credentials to cybercriminals. The checkout forms don't necessarily mimic the real site perfectly, but new or inattentive customers may not notice.
