Webpage Integrity Monitoring (WIM)

Prevents web skimming and stops credit card data theft on ecommerce sites.

A Web Skimming Solution For Ecommerce Businesses

Everyday, hackers quietly steal data from thousands of webpages in web skimming attacks. Also known as Magecart, formjacking, and JavaScript skimming, web skimming falls under the umbrella of supply chain attacks and costs retailers hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. 

Web skimming is difficult to detect and prevent. It takes place outside of servers and firewalls, in the rendered code of the client-side browser. Additionally, traditional security tools and policies were not designed to detect web skimming or to work in dynamic environments like online retail shopping carts. 

SecurityMetrics Analysts discovered the root of these attacks and have developed a patented web skimming solution: Webpage Integrity Monitoring (WIM) technology. WIM technology can detect web skimming at the moment it is triggered and will alert a merchant if a webpage has been compromised.


A Specialized Search Process

WIM finds hidden vulnerabilities only present on shopping cart webpages. 

Low Rate Of False Positives

WIM technology gives you high confidence in your purchase page integrity.

Solutions For All Types of Web Skimming

WIM checks for all types of web skimming on all types of shopping cart technology. 

WIM Runs On Its Own

Merchant is not require to alter or modify webpages in any way to use WIM technology.

Malicious JavaScript Installed on Webpage

Hackers Inject Code Snippets

Cybercriminals know when your patches and software support expire, and they count on the resulting vulnerabilities to perform coordinated zero-day exploits. 

They commonly hack into smaller third parties with less security–like page analytics or ad providers–and insert small snippets of JavaScript that will be brought into the dynamic payment processing environment of a checkout page. This script is malicious and is coded to copy data from form fields on checkout webpages.

Customer Begins Checkout Process

Sensitive Payment Information Is Entered 

There are no red flags or signs that a webpage contains malicious code. Consumers cannot detect web skimming, and it's very difficult for merchant or payment processor to know something is wrong.

The customer will fill out and submit the payment information as usual.

Payment Data Is Skimmed And Sent Elsewhere

Criminals Program Code to Steal Customer's Information

The malcious code snippets are programmed to trigger when a customer performs a specific action–like enterring data in the address or CVV field. 

Once triggered, the code scrapes the user's information and sends it to a location of the attacker's choosing; likely a database where it will be packaged and sold on the dark web.

How WIM Technology Works

Web skimming takes place at the moment of checkout, in a dynamic environment, and beyond the reach of antivirus, vulnerability scanning, and file integrity monitoring (FIM). SecurityMetrics patented web skimming solutions and services use the following steps to detect and prevent the theft of sensitive payment data:

  1. WIM technology simulates a purchase on your webpage.

  2. The program automatically searches the client-side browser code for irregular JavaScript.

  3. WIM technology determines if JavaScript is malicious or legitimate.

  4. If code is malicious, an alert is sent to the client.

WIM technology is protected by any or all of the following patents and other pending applications: U.S. Patent No. 10,289,836.
