a growing crop of so-called bulletproof hosting companies are using the ongoing civil war in Ukraine to host Magecart malware without fear of the police coming knocking.

Looks like Lughansk is back on the scam front :(

I'm a great believer in using third party payment providers on ecommerce sites to avoid stuff like that (or the responsibility for it anyway).

From what I know, Magecart infects mostly Magento sites that havent been upgraded in recent times. Magento is a horrendous piece of overly complex bloatware anyway, and better options exist.

But an interesting article and subject matter nonetheless.  :thumbsup:
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'?
