Hoe wordt webskimming uitgevoerd?

Web skimming attacks are essentially software supply chain attacks that can reach hundreds or thousands of websites using the exploited third-party web application.

Since third-party HTML/JavaScript code is delivered to the website from a completely different repository that the website owner does not have any control over (and can’t possibly monitor directly), hackers target these very third-party web servers. This gives the attacker unauthorized access to all third-party libraries. It’s then all about injecting the skimming code into one of the existing JavaScript files and hiding it.

What is a Watering Hole attack and how to prevent them

A Watering Hole attack is a method in which the attacker seeks to compromise a specific group of end users either by creating new sites that would attract them or by infecting existing websites that members of that group are known to visit. The attacks have been adopted by criminals, APT groups and nation states alike and we see the amounts rising. The goal is to swipe username and password combinations hoping the victim reuses them, or infect a victim's computer and gain access to the network within the victim's place of employment. Many conclude that these attacks are an alternative to Spear Phishing but are quite different. Watering Hole attacks are still targeted attacks, but they cast a wider net and trap more victims than the attacker’s original objective.

Third Party Risk Assessment Fatigue - Why should you care?

It's no secret that companies are increasingly relying on third parties for their product and services that they use in their operations. As a result, companies often have to share confidential information with these third parties and vendors.

It's simple, when companies share their confidential information with third parties, they open themselves to the risk of data breaches and a variety of other cyber security risks.

 

Assessment fatigue is a term that originates from the medical world. It describes the false symptoms someone may show when they’re exposed to too much diagnostic testing. In other words, a patient may experience symptoms of a disease if they’re constantly tested for it, even though they don't have the disease.
