JavaScript Threats

A Clear and Present Danger for all Online Merchants

background image

JavaScript attacks are a top security concern for any organization that acts as an online merchant.

In the overwhelming majority of JavaScript attacks, threat actors like Magecart hide credit card skimmers deep inside client-side JavaScript to capture and exfiltrate credit card and other payment data from customers. RiskIQ has detected millions of skimmers on websites across the globe, and we're continuing to detect new ones every hour. The current pandemic has only served to fuel this growth, with newly discovered skimmers up by 30% since March.

However, most organizations lack visibility into their web-facing assets and the way their users interact with them. As a result, JavaScript compromises can go undetected for weeks or months, damaging customer relationships, brand reputation, and potentially incurring eye-watering fines.

The good news is that RiskIQ offers a detection solution for these types of attacks that is quick and easy to implement, requiring no agents or web site changes.

In this webinar, we'll cover:

  • A review of JavaScript attacks and why they're different from other types of attack
  • A closer look at card skimmers and how they work
  • Current tactics threat actors are using to hide their injections to avoid detection

We'll also show how RiskIQ can enable your organization to be proactive in protecting your customers while avoiding the consequences of large scale personal data theft.
