Sniffing method is an attack method used by cyber fraudsters to steal private information such as passwords and credit cards of website customers by compromising/hacking an e-commerce website.
Cyber fraudsters on the dark web target e-commerce sites and can gain access through passwords obtained from stealer logs or through webshells they install on the systems as a result of exploiting web application/server security vulnerabilities on the site. Then, they can steal users’ credit card information by placing sniffers on the forms where customer credit card information is entered on payment pages or by embedding their own phishing pages with “iframe” tags on the payment page that opens when the user wants to purchase a product. It is known that cyber fraudsters use the stolen credit cards to shop on websites without 3D Secure protection, called “cardable”, or to sell them on the dark web.
