Magecart Claims Fresh Victim In Electronics Kit Seller Kitronik

Online tech retailer Kitronik said Friday it was the victim of Magecart’s payment card-skimming malware, and that the data breach that is the work of the same group which hacked British Airways and Newegg.

Matan Or-El, CEO at Panorays:

“Once hackers like Magecart find a technique that works, they will use it for every industry until the gig is up. This time it’s Javascript injection through third-party snippets. The call for action here is for organizations to put processes in place to manage and review their susceptibility to the Magecart threat through third parties. The wake-up call should have been the BA breach, and organizations that put procedures in place to test third-party snippets for tampering would have remained safe.”
