Cloudflare Introduces Page Shield to Prevent Magecart Card Skimming Attacks

Cloudflare has introduced the latest web security offering in order to prevent Magecart-style attacks. Magecart is an umbrella word that is used to define JavaScript-based, card-skimming attacks. Official websites and e-commerce platforms, including vulnerabilities like in a back-end content management system (CMS) or third-party script dependencies, are often exploited. Moreover, JavaScript code is inserted in e-commerce-related pages, and later any payment card information submitted to these pages is collected and sent to cyber-attackers.

Innumerable businesses have, and continue to, fall victim to Magecart attacks. Past prey comprises Newegg, Boom! Mobile, Ticketmaster, and British Airways.
