Digital skimming is a form of malware that steals sensitive payment information during the online checkout process. This type of cybercrime has become increasingly prevalent, affecting numerous online businesses worldwide. Digital skimming attacks are typically executed by threat actors using JavaScript sniffers on compromised websites to collect payment data. These attacks often target e-commerce platforms and third-party code integrations, and can go undetected for extended periods due to the covert nature of data collection. On December 27, 2023, Europol reported that digital skimming attacks have been deployed by threat actors who stole data from 443 online merchants. The report, shared with Cyber Security News, revealed that the collected threat intelligence data includes infected websites, detected malware signatures, extracted domains, gates, and URLs used by attackers to collect data or load other malware. This information provides valuable insights into the methods used to launch digital skimming attacks. In response to the rising threat of digital skimming attacks, several cybersecurity firms and products have emerged to combat this issue. Imperva's Client-Side Protection prevents online fraud from website supply chain attacks like digital skimming, while F5 focuses on identifying cases of digital skimming to prevent fraud at an earlier stage in the hacker's journey. Furthermore, Europol, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA), and law enforcement authorities from 17 countries have joined forces with private sector partners, including Group-IB and Sansec, to fight against these attacks.
