Being a client oriented organization, Dotsquares like to share recent updated with their valuable clients. We recently received reports of a new malware that appears to capture information from all fields of the checkout process, including credit card information. Attackers are likely using Admin or database access to implement the exploit. We do not have specific information on how the attackers are gaining Admin access, but it is common for them to guess weak passwords, target unpatched sites, or use Admin accounts they may have set up before a site was patched. magento-security We, at Dotsquares, recommend that you run a scan on to determine if you are at risk for a “Credit Card Hijack” and check to see if you have any unknown Admin accounts. You can also review your code for the malware. Our investigations indicate that the malware typically includes the text, “onepage|checkout” and resides in one of two places: Kindly implement the patches or upgrades referred below:
