United States based kitchen utensil manufacturer OXO International disclosed a data breach that spans numerous periods over two years. This breach notification states that customer and payment information may have been exposed and further research indicates this was most likely a MageCart attack.
Commenting on the news is Felix Rosbach, Product Manager at comforte:
“This is yet another example of what we’ve been seeing for years now. If you have to manage an enterprise with a complex network, complex web pages and an ever-expanding attack surface, it’s becoming exceedingly difficult to protect yourself against targeted attacks. This is especially true for online retailers, which not only process a huge amount of data but also need very sensitive data to process orders and online payments. Unfortunately, this makes online retailers a very attractive target for threat groups and hackers.
