Hackers are taking full advantage of the upcoming holiday season to prey on people looking to buy gifts online.

This was confirmed by Kaspersky Lab, who said people looking to buy gifts online should be extra careful, especially people in Italy, Germany, the US, Russia who seem to be ‘particularly at risk’.

Hackers are using well known e-commerce brands, spoofing their websites as they try to steal people’s credentials and other vital information.

They are mostly using Betabot, Panda, Gozi, Zeus, Chthonic, TinyNuke, Gootkit2, IcedID and SpyEye. Kaspersky Lab says so far it has spotted 9.2 million attempted attacks by the end of Q3, 2018, compared to 11.2 for the whole of 2017.
