The Art Of Formjacking

Formjacking is basically a virtual ATM skimming method, where cyber attackers inject a malicious code into the retail websites to steal the customers’ card details. The threat landscape of cyber security is increasing at a rapid rate. Therefore, it is important for organizations to invest in security and ensure they are always prepared for whatever may come. A report states, “Formjacking attacks are simple – essentially virtual ATM skimming – where cyber criminals inject a malicious code into retailers’ websites to steal shoppers’ payment card details.”

Symantec data shows that 4,818 unique websites were compromised with formjacking code every month in 2018.
