Canadian Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), the largest beverage alcohol retailer in the country, disclosed a Magecart attack on January 10, 2023.
Threat actors compromised the Canadian Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s website and injected a malicious code used to steal the credit card data of its customers while checking out their orders.
“LCBO has experienced a cybersecurity incident, affecting online sales through LCBO.com.” reads a company’s statement. “At this time, we can confirm that an unauthorized party embedded malicious code into our website that was designed to obtain customer information during the checkout process.”
Customers who performed payments on the company website between January 5, 2023, and January 10, 2023, may have had their information compromised. Exposed data include names, email and mailing addresses, Aeroplan numbers, LCBO.com account passwords, and credit card information.
