Maxim Zavodchik from Akamai joins Dave to discuss their research on "Xurum: New Magento Campaign Discovered." Akamai researchers have discovered an ongoing server-side template injection campaign that is exploiting digital commerce websites. This campaign targets Magento 2 shops, and was dubbed Xurum in reference to the domain name of the attacker’s command and control (C2) server. 

The research states "The attacker uses an advanced web shell named “wso-ng” that is activated only when the attacker sends the cookie “magemojo000” to the backdoor “GoogleShoppingAds” component."
