EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEWEGG DATA BREACH

Remember when Ticketmaster and British Airways were hacked?

Well,  the infamous Magecart hacking group has struck again, this time targeting Newegg.com a site that welcomes roughly 50 million shoppers every month. The attack is presumed to affect millions.

Between August 14 and September 18, 2018, Magecart used a digital credit card skimmer to steal buyers’ information. They somehow managed to add a few lines of Javascript to the checkout page, which sent code from the website to a remote server on Magecart’s attack domain as soon as a purchase was made.

What does it mean for me?

If you visited Newegg within the past month, take a look at your payment card statements and make sure every charge listed is accurate, and yours. If you notice anything suspicious, contact your bank immediately.

If you run a business, make sure you have proper cybersecurity practices in check, and remain alert of anything that seems off. Contact us if you have any questions.

What happens next?

We anticipate this isn’t the end from Magecart. So make sure you keep an eye on your accounts, because you never know who the next target will be.
