New shopping cart monitor detects digital e-commerce skimming attacks

OREM, Utah, October 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SecurityMetrics has developed new technology for e-commerce that captures digital skimming in shopping carts. As part of the SecurityMetrics Threat Intelligence Hub, Shopping cart monitor protects suppliers by preventing web skimming and theft of credit card data from their e-commerce sites.

This new technology has the potential to save online retailers a lot of money and frustration, as organizations can be held liable for damages, damages that can cost retailers hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

Aaron Willis (SecurityMetrics Forensic Analyst, CISSP) explains, “Attackers are as innovative a breed of criminals as they come. The shopping cart monitor is important because it helps us stay ahead of these attackers. It helps us prevent your site from Web to become the lowest fruit on the tree. By running Monitor, you can stay ahead of attackers…if you are running Monitor, you are better protected.”

Through analysis of data on recent security breaches, SecurityMetrics has found that not only are digital skimming attacks increasing dramatically, but they are also becoming much more sophisticated. E-commerce skimming attacks are particularly vicious because, unlike traditional skimming, they leave no indication of compromise on the web server, making them extremely difficult to detect. Shopping cart monitor is a preventative solution that monitors websites for suspicious activity and alerts you if something goes wrong.

The Shopping Cart Monitor offers:

  • Non-intrusive scanning
  • Customizable notifications
  • Regular alerts and assistance
  • Direct and simple reports
  • Automated inspection
  • Segmented lists of threat indicators
  • User-friendly software
  • 24/7 technical support

Webpage Integrity Monitoring (WIM) is the patented technology behind Shopping Cart Monitor that detects web skimming the moment it is triggered and alerts a merchant if a webpage has been compromised.

SecurityMetrics offers a second WIM service, Inspect Cart, which provides a one-time forensic inspection of shopping carts to determine the source of a breach so it can be repaired. If web page integrity monitoring detects an attack, it is important to collect detailed forensic evidence to understand how an e-commerce website was hacked. A SecurityMetrics forensic analyst will examine your online shopping cart and uncover evidence of a skimming attack so that you can take appropriate action to protect your data.
