News It took hackers just 22 lines of code to steal British Airways’ customer data
In The Name OF Allah
Al-Salam Alekum

Quote:Last week, British Airways acknowledged that its website had been hacked – leading to 380,000 customers‘ data being compromised. It seems like it wasn’t too difficult either: Cybersecurity firm RiskIQ has found out that it took hackers just 22 lines of code to get a hold of the data. RiskIQ speculated that a group called Magecart is behind this attack; it was responsible for the TicketMaster UK hack earlier this year, which affected the data of 400,000 customers. Magecart has traditionally stolen data by injecting a malicious script into payment forms.

The hackers modified a Modernizr javascript version 2.6.2 ( a library used to detect certain user actions like clicks and taps) – on BA’s site to steal the data between August 21 and September 5. RiskIQ found that the script had been modified on August 21 just before the data breach began. The modified code – where just 22 lines were changed – sent the information to the hackers’ servers as soon as someone hit the ‘Submit’ button on the payments form. The script was able to capture BA customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers and details through its site and mobile app.

Wa Salam Alekum
* Thankful to Allah *
