On March 20, 2020, researchers discovered malicious code within the payment page on the official Tupperware website. This malicious code, disguised as an image file, replaced the payment form on the Tupperware website with an identical replica. When Tupperware shoppers entered their payment information, the malicious code skimmed their card information and passed it on to cybercriminals to use as they please. Victims were then shown an error message indicating that the transaction could not be processed, prompting them to refresh the page and try again. After refreshing, they were then provided with the original Tupperware payment form and were able to make their purchase successfully. This breach put the first and last names, billing addresses, telephone numbers, credit card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes into the hands of cybercriminals.
The malicious code was removed from the Tupperware website on March 25, 2020. However, it is unclear how long the malicious code was on their website before it was discovered. Because of that, it is difficult to identify just how many Tupperware shoppers were victims to this breach.
