2,000 eCommerce Sites Running Magento were Hacked Over the Weekend
Nearly 2,000 ecommerce sites running on the Magento platform were compromised over the weekend. The attackers installed malicious code to log payment card data. Most of the hacked sites were running Magento version 1, which is no longer supported. Magento 1.x reached EOL at the end of June 2020.
With an increased reliance on on-line purchases, users also need to take precautions, such as enabling alerts, and possibly authorization, for card-not-present transactions; rather than depending on merchants keeping their systems patched.
