eSkimming, also known as Magecart or Digital Skimming, is a type of malware attack that targets the information entered into payment forms on checkout pages of e-commerce websites. This malicious software is designed to exploit and damage your computer or device, infecting your system through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without your knowledge. Once the malware has infiltrated a system, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold your data hostage for ransom. Magecart attacks have seen a significant increase in recent times. According to Visa, there has been a 174% rise in eSkimming attacks over the past six months. These attacks are designed to skim information from online transactions and send this data back to a remote computer controlled by the attackers. The stolen information can include sensitive data such as credit card numbers, passwords, and other personal details, posing a severe threat to both individuals and businesses alike. The surge in eSkimming attacks underscores the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures. Businesses must prioritize securing their online platforms and implement advanced security protocols to protect their customers' information. Individuals, too, should be cautious when making online transactions, ensuring they only use secure and trusted websites. As eSkimming continues to evolve and become more sophisticated, constant vigilance and proactive defense strategies will be critical in combating this rising cybersecurity threat.
