This holiday season, more consumers than ever will be shopping digitally — and cybercriminals are already capitalising on the opportunity. Greg Foss, Senior Cybersecurity Strategist at VMware Carbon Black, looked through the dark web to find that:
- Magecart is one of the most prominent groups behind this activity, consistently extending their capabilities and improving their tactics to infiltrate e-commerce applications, evade detections, and siphon off sensitive card data.
- Swiped credit cards are going for an average rate of $10-20/card on the dark web
- PayPal accounts are selling for $2-10/account, with those accounts loaded with more money costing more.
