JEWELRY CHAIN HIT BY CYBER ATTACK

3/21/20, was the day after a jewelry chain closed its physical stores. A domain name, or website name, was registered using the name of the business. The suspects broke into the business’s online infrastructure. They added code to the jewelry chains online store. That code changed a file which enabled data exfiltration; which is the malicious retrieval of data from a computer or server. When customers entered payment information into their shopping carts, the malicious code essentially took a picture of that information.
