The quick transition to mobile has had an effect on brick and mortar stores. Shops with a real map address are focusing their energies on electronic addresses with e-commerce shops ramping up and focusing on mobile platform ease of use. While statistics show that e-commerce is booming, the company’s need to keep their businesses safe and secure for its customers.

A vulnerability in the eBay owned e-commerce platform Magento was discovered by the research division of Check Point LTD. This vulnerability compromised 200,000 online stores, including large-scale businesses. To see a couple of businesses that use Magento, click here.
