Most e-commerce websites running Magento at high risk of cybercrime
A new report by Foregenix indicates that reliance on the highly popular open-source e-commerce platform Magento can put small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) at risk of cyberattacks. A whopping 87% of SMBs in the study that use Magento are at a high risk of cybercrime, while this number was less than 10% for firms relying on other e-commerce platforms.
The research also suggests that North American SMBs using Magento are more likely to be at risk of cybercrime than is true for European organizations. Globally, 1.4% of Magento sites have been compromised by payment card skimming malware that is used in attacks like the Magecart campaign.
