In another brazen attack against a major online retailer, the actors behind Magecart have struck the eCommerce operations of the popular computer hardware and electronics retailer Newegg. With this latest attack, newegg.com joins the ranks of high-profile eCommerce websites that have fallen victim to the financial theft group. Based on findings recently published by RiskIQ, Magecart was identified as being responsible for a recently publicized breach claiming upwards of 380,000 victims that had used the British Airways website or mobile application. As it turns out, a nearly identical data theft campaign was being carried out against Newegg at the same time. In fact, it appears the Newegg compromise may have started nearly a week earlier.
Volexity believes that the Newegg website may have been compromised and actively facilitating financial theft for over a month. A key date in the Magecart attacks against Newegg come from the registration data of the neweggstats.com domain. The domain was registered on August 13, 2018 at approximately 16:36 UTC via Namecheap. This indicates the attackers had likely already compromised the Newegg website and were preparing to launch attacks. WHOIS information form the domain shows it was registered with privacy protection.
Through its global sensors network, Volexity was able to confirm attacks via Newegg three days later on August 16, 2018. Based on data that Volexity obtained from its sensor network, it appears the code may have been added somewhere between 15:45 and 20:20 UTC. It is possible that the attackers started earlier, however, Volexity's review of various networks with Newegg transactions earlier in the day and leading up to this time show no connections back to neweggstats.com.
