Due to this, Magecart attacks can quietly steal credit cards from visitors for many months, if not years, before they are detected and resolved.
Page Shield to protect against malicious scripts
“Our mission is to help build a better Internet. This extends to end-user browsers, where we’ve seen an alarming increase in attacks over the past several years. With Page Shield, we will help applications detect and mitigate these elusive attacks to keep their user’s sensitive information safe,” Cloudflare announced today.
Using these reports, Cloudflare will build a history of known scripts utilized on the site. When a new one is detected, alert the website administrator so they can investigate further.
In the future, Cloudflare states that they plan on adding additional features that will issue alerts when the content of a script has changed of contains malicious signatures.
However, this feature is only coming to Business and Enterprise subscriptions, and those in the Pro or Free services levels will not be able to benefit from the service.
