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].

Most of us will have been affected by a credit card breach within the last few years - I can’t imagine there could be many people in first world countries who have not had their credit / debit card details stolen and received a replacement card from their bank. It's a major hassle - stressful and a huge waste of time.
