Tupperware site hacked with credit card skimmer

Tupperware hasn’t yet put
a lid on a targeted cyberattack that uses a credit card skimmer to collect
customer payment information at checkout on the tupperware[.]com site and some
of its local sites.

The threat actors hid “malicious code within an image file that
activates a fraudulent payment form during the checkout process,” according to researchers
at Malwarebytes who discovered the compromise March 20. “This form collects
customer payment data via a digital credit card skimmer and passes it on to the
cybercriminals with Tupperware shoppers none-the-wiser.”

The Tupperware party long ago moved to the internet – with more
than one million people visiting the company’s website monthly. And as COVID-19
virus drives more people online to shop, the researchers wrote in a Wednesday
blog post
that “there is little doubt that a larger number of transactions will be
impacted by credit card skimmers,” one of the top web threats they monitor.

The
actors behind the Tupperware compromise put effort behind integrating the
skimmer seamlessly and remain undetected. Malwarebytes found the malicious
activity during a web crawl after coming across a suspicious iframe loaded from
deskofhelp[.]com when visiting the retailer’s checkout page and which displays
the payment form fields used by shoppers.   

The domain was registered on March 9 using an email address with
Russian provider Yandex and found alongside other phishing domains.

The hackers’ scheme weren’t meticulous, though. “The attackers
didn’t carefully consider (or perhaps didn’t care about) how the malicious form
should look on localized pages,” the researchers wrote, noting that while the
Spanish version of the Tupperware site is written in Spanish, the rogue payment
form remained in English.
