Rooster Teeth Alerts Customers to Magecart Attack

The entertainment company discovered malicious content on the Shopify platform for its online store and removed it the same day.

US entertainment company Rooster Teeth, which creates podcasts and short-form content, is notifying users about a data breach affecting visitors to the Shopify platform of its online store. 

The incident is limited to the e-commerce platform and does not affect Rooster Teeth accounts or FIRST membership subscriptions. On December 2, Rooster Teeth discovered malicious code had been added to its website earlier the same day. Shoppers who visited checkout and entered shipping data were redirected to a spoofed page where they were prompted to enter payment details in order to complete their purchases. Those who submitted data to the spoofed page were redirected back to the legitimate page, where they were asked to fill out the forms again.

Rooster Teeth removed the malicious code from its website and took additional steps to protect the page from further unauthorized access, the company wrote in an email to affected users. It's alerting everyone who visited the breached checkout process the day of the attack.

In an effort to help protect users' identities, Rooster Teeth is offering third-party credit monitoring services via Experian for one year to potentially compromised users. It also encourages users to vigilantly watch for fraud by monitoring their personal account statements.
