The pirates of the Magecart nebula are constantly multiplying the infection techniques that have already claimed more than 2 million victims.
Third-party web services, Wi-Fi routers, Amazon S3 storage, advertising....
The Group 5, one of Magecart's most active groups, loves to target Internet services companies, which provide publishers with analysis services or turnkey features. This allows a large number of sites to be infected at the same time.
According to an IBM X Force study, this group also seeks to hack into vulnerable Wi-Fi routers in public areas - airports, hotels, etc. - to inject malicious scripts on the fly.
Since April 2018, hackers have reportedly managed to insert their malicious code on more than 18,000 websites. Other groups focus on the vulnerabilities of e-commerce platforms such as Magento or OpenCart, which are used by thousands of sites. Still others try to infect sites through ad servers.
This proliferation of attacks is all the more serious as malicious scripts are detected, on average, only after 22 days.
It is easier to understand why the number of victims is so high. And it's not over yet. According to RiskIQ, Magecart groups should continue to multiply... and the number of victims should increase.
