Leicester City Football Club: English professional football club.
Risk to Small Business: 1.888 = Severe: Malware infecting the online store for the football club has siphoned payment information from the site’s users. Although the company can’t confirm the precise vulnerability that led to the breach, online stores are increasingly being targeted using the Magecart infection because of the uniquely sensitive information that is exposed during the checkout process. The team notified its customers of the breach, and it is now undergoing the arduous process of restoring faith in their platform.
Individual Risk: 2.285 = Severe: The malware collected payment information at checkout, which includes names, payment card information, expiration dates, and CVVs. While hackers are prevented from using the compromised payment information on the site, this data is valuable on the Dark Web, and it can quickly spread to other outlets through spear-phishing attacks. Users should be extremely vigilant about monitoring their financial records, and they are encouraged to acquire credit monitoring services.
Customers Impacted: Unknown
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: In the wake of many damaging data breaches originating at checkout, any organization with an online store needs to be especially mindful of their cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Most notably, they need to address them before they damage their customers while also doing considerable harm to the company’s bottom line and reputation. In addition, every organization needs a plan to support their customers in the event of an attack.
