      Well, just in time for the holiday Season…and plan to see this sort of thing, as usual, as the year winds down. And it’s MageCart again:

      “American gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson’s online store has been compromised by attackers who have injected a malicious script that attempts to steal customer’s payment information.

      “This type of attack is called MageCart and is when hackers compromise a web site so that they can inject malicious JavaScript scripts into ecommerce or checkout pages. These scripts then steal payment information that is submitted by a customer by sending it to a remote site under the attacker’s control.”
