Card Validation
One of the campaign's unique qualities, according to Fortinet's report, is that the software injects a fake card payment form on a targeted Web page and skims a victim's entered card information, whether or not the page is a checkout form. This means the skimmer can be brought into the customer experience much earlier.
  • Wouldn't it be prudent to check if the card has been stolen by querying a database of stolen cards submitted by the bank or card processing companies? This would reduce the use of stolen cards and mitigate this fraudulent activity.
  • Also, if a fake card form is submitted, shouldn't that form be held up during the approval process before it goes to the next step or remain external to the organization until the form's information has been verified (text or phone call)?

Just curious.

Re: Card Validation
Database of Stolen cards. Just curious, does this actually exist? I hadn't heard of an agnostic list of confirmed stolen credit cards.

Regardless, if it does exist it would be a race condition from when the card was stolen and when it was added to the database. If the malformed checkout form was sent before the DB add then there would be no checks against it.

Re: Card Validation
Currently, a legal DB does not exist (most are found illegally), this was more of a hypothetical (this was more a question to the group); if something like this did exist, then we could query this data to help identify fraud before accepting the stolen credit card application (cutting them off at the pass).

However, there are databases on the web with stolen credit cards, this is part of the dark web:

Re: Card Validation
Ah ok so your reference was to the dark web. Makes sense. For this to become more operational a DB to pull directly from the Dark Web stolen credit cards would need to be created. This has its own inherent risks.

Would be a nice lot of information to thave though.

Re: Card Validation
I do apologize if I was not clear, I was saying from a hypothetical standpoint, if we put together a DB that is populated from the various banks and credit card agencies, we could stop the fraud at the very beginning. The dark we was presented only to provide insight that this can be done, we could even use their model as a way of creating something that spans multiple banking organizations (across the globe).

Re: Card Validation
www.SourceDefense.com has come up with a unique way to solve this problem by taking away DOM access to the supply chain.  By doing this you can no longer insert anything on to the browser which elimitates the Magecart attack at the browser level which is the flaw and how these attacks happen.  V.I.C.E. is the name of the technology and is worth looking into if you are concerned about Magecart or really anyone having access to your customers data at the browser both credit card as well as privacy information.
