Ongoing Credit Card Data Leak


DNSMon is a network-wide DNS malicious domain analysis system we build here at 360Netlab. With the 10%+ total DNS traffic coverage in China, plus the other multi-dimensional security data and security analysis capabilities we have accumulated over the years, we can “see” what is happening in the whole network in real time from a unique perspective.


Summary

Our DNSMon flagged an abnormal domain name magento-analytics[.]com, through continuous tracking, and correlation with various data, we found out that the domain name has been used to inject malicious JS script to various online shopping sites to steal the credit card owner / card number / expiration time / CVV information.

Origin

In October 2018, the domain name magento-analytics[.]com appeared on our DNSMon radar, the traffic is pretty low we temporarily put it in our tracking process and start to keep an eye on it.

WechatIMG101

The domain is registered in Panama, but in recent months, the ip moved around from “United States – Arizona” to “Russia – Moscow”, then to “China – Hong Kong.” Which begs us to take a second look.

1556182793291

Analysis

The domain returns a 403 page when you try to access it in a browser, and google search doesn’t return much details either.
Luckily, as the domain is in our DNSMon tracing process, we have the ability to hang anchor points in our data streams and aggregate the data related to it. For example, we can easily find the URLs under the domain name.
As you can see, the domain name has been hosting a lot of JS scripts since the beginning of December, and most of the components are very similar.

A pretty simple JS. As soon as the JS is loaded, a timer is set and the TrySend function is called every 500ms to try to get input data such as Number/Holder/Date/CVV, etc., once success, it finally calls SendData to report the data to [hxxps://magento-analytics.com/gate.php].
The other JSs in the URLS, whether it is a 13-bytes hash-like JS, or a specially named JS such as powermusic.js/monsieurplus.js/powermusic.js, all provide the same function.

Verification

With the above information in hand, we can correlate this malicious domain in our DNSMon to find out what the target websites, there are 105 websites have this JS loaded(please note there should have infected websites as we DNS visibility does not cover global traffic).

Take one victim as an example, www.kings2.com, when a user loads its homepage, the JS runs as well. If a user selects a product and goes to the “Payment Information” to submit the credit card information, after the CVV data is entered, the credit card information will be uploaded.
