Operates Very Silently
- The Pipka skimmer makes sure to wipe out all traces of its unsafe activity from the compromised host. The source code of the infiltrated check-out page will not contain any remnants of the Pipka skimmers' corrupted code.
The data that the attackers can collect is very diverse. However, for now, the authors of the Pipka skimmer have opted to concentrate on collecting the clients' names, addresses, and information about their credit cards such as the credit card number, the CVV code and the expiration date. It is clear that this is a very serious breach into one's privacy and can end up as a catastrophe for many users.
Online merchants need to be very careful as breaches like this can cost their customers dearly, and it is their responsibility to keep their clients safe.
