???? Compromised OpenCart Payment Module Steals Credit Card Info ????

Here’s the scoop on a recent cyber incident that caught our attention. A concerning case of credit card information theft through a compromised OpenCart payment module has been uncovered. Let’s dive into the details.

???? Magecart Strikes Again ????

Magecart, a sneaky online threat, has been making waves since 2015 by snatching credit card data from online stores. This time, it aimed its sights at OpenCart, a popular e-commerce platform.

???? The Intrusion ????

Picture this: A client reports suspicious credit card activities on their website. Major credit card companies even spot this domain as a potential source of compromised cards. Cue our investigation! ????‍????

????️‍♂️ The Hunt Begins ????️‍♂️

We roll up our sleeves and dig into the code. Typically, these malicious codes pop up when users reach the checkout. Sometimes, they’re well-hidden, but we’ve got tricks up our sleeves like NoScript to spot ’em.

???? The Twist ????

Surprisingly, no fishy business on the checkout page itself. So, we take a detour to the backend files. Timing is key; knowing when the theft started is like finding the needle in the haystack. In this case, it had been ongoing for months before the alarm bells rang.

???? The Culprit Revealed ????

After narrowing down the time frame, we unearthed the pesky culprit. The attackers had tinkered with a critical file that handles payment processing. A similar tactic we’ve seen before.

Stay vigilant, folks! Make sure your e-commerce platforms are up to date and secured. ????????

Remember, safety online is a team effort! ???? Stay tuned for more updates. ????????

???? Malicious Packages Target Rust Language’s Crate Registry ????

Heads up, developers! ???? A recent report reveals concerning news about the Rust programming language’s crate registry.

Malicious libraries, uploaded from August 14 to 16, 2023, by user “amaperf,” have been discovered. Names like postgress, if-cfg, and more were taken down, but the threat is real.

The Plot Uncovered ????️‍♂️

These sinister packages held hidden agendas. Their purpose? To gather OS info (Windows, Linux, macOS) and send it to a Telegram channel via API. It seems the bad actors were gearing up for a larger scheme, maybe to unleash improved data theft tactics.

???? Developers in the Crosshairs ????

Developers, you’re in demand! With SSH keys, infrastructure access, and IP at stake, you’re prime targets. Stay vigilant! ????

⚠️ A Familiar Tune ⚠️

This isn’t the first registry under attack. Remember CrateDepression on It used typosquatting for data theft. The lesson: watch your step.

???? Wider Nets, Bigger Threat ????

Hold on, npm folks! ???? Phylum also found an npm package, “emails-helper,” that sets off remote info theft. Don’t let “simple” npm install actions trigger intricate attacks. ????

Stay smart, stay safe! ???? #DevAlert ????
