Australia bushfire charities hit by credit card cyberattack

Donating to help the victims of Australia’s bushfires could put your credit card details at risk as security researchers have discovered that cybercriminals have compromised one of the websites collecting donations by injecting a malicious script into the site which steals the payment information of donors.

This kind of attack is known as Magecart and it involves hackers compromising a website to inject malicious JavaScript code into a site’s ecommerce or checkout pages. These scripts are used to steal credit card or payment information which is then sent to a remote site controlled by the attackers.
