Server-Side Skimmer Attacks Are Taking Over E-Commerce

Cybersecurity experts are familiar with client-side skimmer attacks and identifying their origins but server-side skimmer attacks are making a larger impact on e-commerce this year. Its been reported that server-side skimmer attacks have made up almost 65% of e-commerce cyberattacks this year. First, it’s important to know the differences between both server-side and client-side skimmer attacks. Client-side malware attacks have been identified in both social media share buttons and CSS. These attacks are hard to initially catch because malware can be disguised within valid images and code that isn’t usually analyzed. While scanner technology is improving, cyber criminals are always creating new methods to implement malware that avoids scanning. Server-side attacks take place on the back-end of websites and applications. Recently, malware has been implemented into systems through JavaScript where it is hidden from public view. Experts suggest routinely scanning back-end resources in order to detect harmful malware.
