Analysts of the Visa payment system reported that attackers began to hack infected sites and intercept previously stolen user data from each other.
According to experts, hackers purposefully scanned previously infected sites and implemented their own scenarios to steal data from previously visited hackers.
“Attacks on the vulnerabilities of popular e-commerce platforms continued from 2020 to 2021, but with some changes. For example, in one of the cases, the attackers purposefully scanned sites that had already been infected with skimmers and implemented their own script to steal data from the first attackers. Such cases clearly demonstrate the dangers of using outdated software “,” Visa analysts said in a comment to RIA Novosti.
To control attacks, cybercriminals most often use the Telegram messenger, which provides easy access to infrastructure and data retrieval using various devices connected to the Internet.
