I wanted to share info for a suspicious customer that successfully placed an order with us early this morning.
The â€œcustomerâ€ was named Linda Juan (see more details of their exploits below)
They were able to create a new customer account and then proceeded to place an order.
There were 4 attempts at the transaction - all failed as a bad card. The 5th attempt succeeded but with a strange shipping address, a bad email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and wrong phone number. I thought cs-cart or my payment processor would prevent orders like this going through? The strange thing is in my cs-cart order details it doesnâ€™t show any credit card info, just blank missing. Also the â€œShip Toâ€ and â€œCustomer Notesâ€ fields have these weird extra characters at the ends. See below:
444 Rollins St">
Missoula, Montana 59801
I wanted to report this to give others a heads up, but is this something cs-cart could have prevented from occurring or is it all on my payment processor? Seems like some sort of automated script. I am currently running the latest version of CS-Cart 4.9.2.SP4. Anything else I can do going forward to block these orders? I already blocked the IP address: 184.108.40.206
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
