The title is no longer required.
What a pisser. That thing about hiding it in the logos though, impressive.
The payment-card-skimming Magecart malware has turned up on yet more websites, this time 570 spanning 55 countries, it emerged this week. The team at security biz Gemini Advisory said a long-running criminal gang dubbed Keeper compromised hundreds of online shopping sites over the past three years to install the software nasty …
How dare they! Is there no common decency left in the world? Websites selling crap tat, health care organizations, government services - I'm not saying it is okay to hack them, but the harm is obviously limited. But hacking Upscalestrippers - that is a step too far. We need to bring back hanging, drawing, and quartering forthwith!
Paypal can't take your funds if you use them ONLY to pay people - and give paypal a credit card number so you can do a chargeback if they screw you (though I've never had to do so)
I would never in a million years trust paypal with access to my bank account (or a debit card, which is the same thing) because I remember hearing many stories like your friends' in the past.
I'd use Apple Pay if there was a way to use it from my (non Apple) desktop where I do my shopping. Yes I could go my phone to complete a purchase when I've identified what I want, but that's too much hassle just to use a payment method I prefer.
It would be cool if they set up something like having the site show a QR code you could show to your phone and it would do the authentication and send the OK that would be pushed to the website. But I guess Apple would prefer that I use a Mac running Safari to make my purchases instead :)

This is how Twint works here in Switzerland. Twint for shop payments is a PITA (the crappy beacons never work), but it's OK for online.
Well played El Reg.
On the list are: Orange.com (Orange SFR), the Body Shop, among other large brands. Interesting to see some comments stating these websites are all smallscale local shops, as that is clearly not true!
I hope you persist in asking Orange and the Body Shop for a response.
The PDF list of sites linked in the article is all over the place in terms of sorting. If you're looking for specific sites, use the search facility rather than looking manually through the list or you may miss them. The list looks to be alphabetical at the beginning, but goes haywire in the second column.
Paypay isn't your friend. Don't use them.
A lot of the Fintech companies have interesting products around single use virtual credit cards. I use a Fintech that starts with 'R' and the account usually has a enough money on it for a train ticket, a beer and a mars bar. Load more only when required.
Usual caveats apply. Caveat Emptor. Check for a banking license, insurance, WHERE it is licensed, etc.
Best use, the GF occasionally buys stupid shite from late night TV. Her one non-fun vice. And forgets to pay the invoice. Single use, virtual, credit card means its done and dusted when she makes the call.
Single use credit cards? Won't somebody think of the fish with all that plastic? Just saw on the Beeb today all those face masks ending up as fish fodder I mean people why do you insist on travelling to your nearest ocean just to throw your mask in, surely your rubbish bin is more convenient. If your rubbish bin then ends up in the ocean then that's hardly your problem.
Oddly I had a Faceache ad today proclaiming an eID you can use at the local gambling outlet to save you needing a plastic card that lasts 5 or 10 years. Yeah I can see all that plastic wasted on ID cards is a really big problem! This is Sweden where the Green (4%) party have convinced the rest of the government that renewable energy is sufficient for the country. Which is why in the middle of the summer they needed to fire up an Oil powered power station to meet demand... Meanwhile they're shutting down the last nuke reactors because they're less green than oil hmm.
