NutriBullet and Tupperware, the two giants in their respective corporate fields, have been the last prey of web skimming.

The attack against the popular blender vendor, NutriBullet was carried out by Magecart Group 8 using a JavaScript-based skimmer.

The malicious iframe injected into the Tupperware sites had collected shoppers' first and last names, billing addresses, credit card expiry dates, telephone numbers, and CVV numbers.

An online printing platform, Reprint Mint, was inflicted many times with a variety of skimmer code to pilfer card information of customers. These skimmers connected to different C2 servers to send back data collected from the website.
