Ticketmaster Breach Part of Larger Credit Card Fraud Campaign
According to new research released this week, the Ticketmaster breach may only be part of a larger operation involving the skimming of credit cards affecting as much as 800 ecommerce sites.
The Magecart threat group, which was operational since 2015, is said to be responsible for the campaign. The hackers usually target software companies that build and provide code that developers include on their websites. The altered code then affects every website that it runs on and affects millions of users daily.
RiskIQ says that the Ticketmaster breach was far bigger than first thought as it was running code from a third-party company that had been compromised by the threat group.
