Hackers have breached the infrastructure of Volusion, a provider of cloud-hosted online stores, and are delivering malicious code that records and steals payment card details entered by users in online forms.
More than 6,500 stores are impacted, but the number could be even higher. In a press release published last month, Volusion claimed it had more than 20,000 customers. The most notable compromise is the Sesame Street Live online store, which has been taken down earlier today after another journalist reached out. At the time of writing, the malicious code is still on Volusion’s servers and is still being delivered to all of the company’s client stores.
