Ever wondered what it takes to get scammed @ Infowars store? Nothing! Absolutely Nothing! Customers facing Scams is an everyday facade here!
A recently discovered attack at Infowars web site involves a new tactic. A malware embedded in the conspiracy site’s checkout process records customer’s credit card details and transmits them to threat actor’s remote servers.
In today’s golden age of online shopping, people usually prefer to receive products at their doorsteps by punching in credit card details in ecommerce websites. Threat actors leverage this lucrative opportunity to yank the chain of innocent consumers by unethical means.
Consumers remain unaware of the fact that the well-known & vetted websites that they blindly rely on can swindle them of their hard earned money.
Attacks on websites with the purpose of stealing user financial details are not new. Magecart credit card skimming attack has been recently discovered that is known to have stolen the credit card details of around 1600 customers within 24 hours.
Magecart has been used in various forms to gobble up credit card information across the e- commerce industry. High profile hacks on renowned companies like Newegg & British Airways utilized this technique exploiting thousands of consumers.
Magecart script was embedded on every page of Infowars’ online store but it reportedly functioned when a user decided to check out. The piece of code once installed attempted to masquerade as part of a Google Analytic Script. The malicious script comprised of the following methods that launched the attack in various stages:
The corporate press claimed that the point of entry of the deceit was a Magento plugin to the shopping cart. However, Infowarsstore.com alleges to have never installed that plugin.
Infowars states that this zero day hack involved a hacker group that aimed to scare business away from Infowarstore.com.
Infowars blames the big techs, Communist Chinese and Democratic Party for this act to defame Infowars.
Moreover, the company states that most of the purchases during the time of the malware attack were re-orders, so the probability of customer’s information being compromised is negligible.
