Magecart groups are still attacking the "low-hanging fruit," but they're also getting smarter. Venezuelans appear to be meddling in a Colombian election. And the experts explain the importance of a crude but widely circulated deepfake. This is CyberScoop for March 21.

The Magecart era is hardly over

Recent attacks by Magecart groups served as reminders that years of warnings about "skimmer" malware had not reached some corners of the e-commerce world. The incidents are also the latest signs that a threat identified a half-decade ago is not fading away. This particular brand of cybercrime remains pesky and low-profile, and cybersecurity researchers say the crooks are still devising new ways to skim consumers' credit-card information when they pay for goods online. Joe Warminsky dives in.

Influence op by Venezuelan leftists sought to swing Colombian election

Research published Monday shows how Venezuelan leftists used Twitter to circulate disinformation and attempt to swing support to Colombian presidential candidate Gustavo Petro. The threat intelligence firm Nisos produced the report, which showed ties between the Twitter account's Venezuelan operator and the Colombian candidate. Petro, a former M-19 guerrilla, is polling ahead of the incumbent and is on pace to win the May 29 election. Suzanne Smalley has the story.


How much of a threat was the Zelenskyy deepfake?

A deepfake that went viral last week before being removed by social media platforms was a poorly executed mess, but experts said it still circulated enough to be dangerous. Deepfake detection technology lags behind the technology used to produce them, experts said, with one calling the "cat and mouse game" between deepfake aggressors and debunkers a conflict that the bad guys are winning. The Zelenskyy deepfake benefited from effective "pre-bunking" by the Ukrainian president's administration, which warned citizens to be on the lookout for surrender-themed deepfakes in the weeks before one hit. Suzanne has this one, too.
