New Skimming Malware Exploits WooCommerce Plugin

Card skimming attacks are often targeted on e-commerce websites for credentials. But, they all have few things in common that detect the breach easily. This could be planting the code at the same spots, or similar code seen in other attacks like Magecart or taking the user to a different payment site. But there’s a group of skimmers who are actively attacking the WooCommerce WordPress plug-in, by manipulating JavaScript code deeply and unseen by regular scans.

State of the Meetup Under Lockdown – WordPress Tavern

By now we’re all getting weary of the phrase “new normal.” Much ink has been spilled over the question of what that new normal will look like after the pandemic has passed over us. There’s a stubborn streak in the American national character that admits of little change but, like an assiduous puppy, finds what works.

I’ve been attending the local WordPress Meetup since moving to Asheville, North Carolina, three years ago. Finding myself in a new city, getting out into the community and meeting people in the same industry seemed like a good opportunity to get connected….

Analysis of a WordPress Credit Card Swiper

While working on a recent case, I found something on a WordPress website that is not as common as on Magento environments: A credit card swiper injection.

Typically this type of malware targets dedicated ecommerce platforms such as Magento and Prestashop (due to their focus in handling payment information, which we have documented extensively in the past). With WooCommerce recently overtaking all other ecommerce platforms in popularity it was only a matter of time before we started seeing attackers target this platform more frequently.

Jetpack Re-launches Search Feature as Standalone Service – WordPress Tavern

The Jetpack team announced today that its search service is now available as a separate package from the professional bundle it was previously under. The move should make it more affordable for small sites to use the service. Larger sites might have to shell out more money, depending on how much content is on the site.

“Jetpack Search had only been available as a part of the Jetpack Professional plan at $29 per month, but that pricing felt unfair: a site with one million posts costs 1,000 times as much to index as a site with one thousand posts, but both sites were paying the same…
