CSIM is a wide and rapidly growing but yet invisible cyber threat that may compromise enterprise’s digital experience and their customers’ privacy and data integrity. CSIM bypasses any server-side security shield and therefore has not been resolved by extreme security measures enterprises implement.
CSIM includes unauthorized widgets (product recommendations and deals), ads and spyware scripts that are injected into websites by extensions installed on user’s browsers or through unintended software downloaded by them.
Users become infected by downloading different kinds of software and browser extensions that may seem legit, but include hidden malware and spyware. CSIM affects all browsers on both desktop and mobile.
Injections are unauthorized widgets showing up in your visitor’s browser, without the site owner’s permission with no compensation to the site owner. The injections are initiated by independent third party services that hijack the web page and place unauthorized malware to obtain sensitive information or as a monetization method.
There are various types and forms of CSIM, and they are designed to manipulate end-users to consider them as an integral part of the website’s digital experience.
Injected Products – competing product ads may be injected into the product pages as well as other pages. Product ads are designed to lure end-users to other destinations causing the website owner potential loss of traffic and revenue. In addition, product ads exploit the website’s brand and create a significant distraction to the functionality, conversion funnel and digital experience.
Injected Ads – injected banner ads and pop-ups may include ads to various other digital assets and often include inappropriate content, diminishing the site’s brand. Unauthorized injected ads may cause websites to lose traffic but also create an unpleasant experience to visitors, significantly harm users retention and trust, and compromise the website’s integrity.
Spyware Scripts – a large percentage of CSIM is comprised of scripts that are injected into the website and are designed to obtain sensitive, and at times confidential, user information and intelligence on the website’s operations. There are many types of spyware – just to name a few, spyware includes false surveys that encourage users to expose sensitive information, and remote-access tools (RATs) that are designed to stall the user while collecting information. Other forms of spyware may steal login credentials, payment methods and even screenshots of data displayed on the screen.
15%-30% of your online users are infected with CSIM, every day, and view your website not as you intended. This figure is highly seasonal and may increase by up to 30%-50% during special periods such as holiday seasons. CSIM may cause significant loss of traffic and potential revenue, but also compromise the website’s integrity, sensitive data and significantly harm users’ trust. CSIM also disrupts the designed digital experience, conversion funnels and the brand.
Once infected with CSIM, your visitors will experience your site completely different from the way it was designed. CSIM injects unwanted ads, disrupting visitors’ experience, taking away their attention and subsequently luring them away. Invisible spyware poses a significant threat to users’ private and sensitive data.
