More than 800 e-commerce sites targeted by cyber attack

Cybersecurity firm RiskIQ has determined that more than 800 e-commerce sites worldwide have been targeted by a digital credit card skimming campaign. NAFCU – a leading advocate for national data security standards – continues to push for the adoption of data and cybersecurity standards for all entities that hold consumers’ information.

At the end of June, Ticketmaster revealed that customers’ credit card information was breached from various Ticketmaster websites, though no North American customers were compromised.

However, RiskIQ said hacking group Magecart, which it has tracked since 2015, had a more extensive campaign that targeted more than 800 sites between February 2017 and June 2018.
