Gift Cards at risk!

 
 

Cybercriminals have started to use a bot attack that is used for breaking into online gift card accounts. Once the bot has broken in then it will start to drain the account. The name of this nasty is GiftGhostBot, it was first discovered late last month.

It doesn’t matter what website it could be luxury retailers or coffee distributors, if it has the capabilities of processing gift cards then it could be at risk. A security firm called Distil have said that they have seen this attack on almost a 1000 websites already.
