Dubbed Pipka, the malicious script was found by researchers from Visa’s Payment Fraud Disruption (PFD) team on the site of a North American merchant that had been previously infected with a different skimmer called Inter.
Web skimming is the theft of payment card details from ecommerce websites through malicious scripts injected into them.
Some exploit known vulnerabilities.
Others compromise legitimate third-party scripts that are loaded into websites, like those for web analytics services, and there is evidence that some groups are compromising routers used to set up Wi-Fi hotspots in airports and other public spaces to inject their code into legitimate traffic.
With no shortage of methods of compromising websites, researchers expect that web skimming attacks will continue.
The skimmer can target two-step checkout pages by having configurable fields for both billing data and payment account data.
“When the skimmer executes, on script load, it calls the start function which calls the clear function and sets the skimmer to look for data every second,” the Visa researchers said in their security alert .

Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
