Facebook Ads Extension for Magento Leaking Magento Version

When looking for new websites to target, a typical hacker will try to find sites which will require as little effort as possible for them to breach. Ideally they are looking for sites that are running outdated versions of frameworks such as Magento and WordPress, which may be missing critical security patches. Once they have identified a site like this they can usually use a pre-made exploit instead of having to craft their own code to gain access to the server.

Anatomy Of A Magento Attack: Froghopper

 

Magento is the most popular eCommerce web application in the world, with an estimated 236,000 live websites using the Content Management System (CMS)[1]. Available in both paid-for “enterprise” versions and free “community” versions, it powers some of the world's most popular websites including Huawai[2], Land Rover[3] and Helly Hansen[4]. However, common eCommerce platforms make popular targets for hackers and thieves looking to steal payment card information.
