Hackers are hiding virtual credit card skimmers in image file metadata

Lots of people know to check ATMs and gas station credit card readers for skimmers, but it’s harder to tell when virtual ones are hidden them in websites’ payment portals. According to research from Malwarebytes, hackers put Magecart JavaScript code into the EXIF metadata of image files, which is then loaded and executed by compromised stores. Hiding malicious code inside of images is nothing new, but it’s the first time security researchers have seen them used to obscure credit card skimmers.
