    WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

    • At 6:21am on 23/06/2021, an unauthorised party leveraged a third-party plugin script on the TechFast website Checkout page and inserted malicious code. This code placed a module on the Checkout page of the website, which appeared when the Pay with Credit Card - SecurePay radial button was clicked.

    • The malicious module contained fields to enter the credit card number, expiry data, and CVC. If data (including credit card data) was entered into any these fields, the data was immediately sent off the TechFast website. An image of the module as it appeared on the site is here:

    ISSUE RESOLUTION:

    • The issue was fully resolved at 2:21pm on 24/06/2021. The risk to our customers ended at this point.
    • We have contacted and notified the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), are awaiting further instruction, and will fully comply with any further requirements from them and other agencies if required.

    WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:

    • If you entered your card details into the malicious module at any point, even if you did not continue or complete the transaction via the regular Checkout method on our website, it is extremely likely that your credit card details have been compromised. We recommend that you contact your financial institution to check that no unauthorised transactions have been made, and cancel your credit card. If unauthorised transactions have occurred on your card, you need to contact your bank and initiate a chargeback.
    • We understand and acknowledge the inconvenience of this situation. We are willing to reasonably compensate customers who need to initiate a chargeback with their bank, for their time in resolving the inconvenience caused. Please email [email protected] to initiate this process.

    IMPORTANT NOTES:

    • The malicious code was only able to access data entered into the fields within the module; no other data was affected, on the Checkout page or any other pages.
    • If you followed the regular Checkout process, which involves clicking the Pay with Credit Card - SecurePay radial button, then clicking the Continue button at the bottom of the page, and entering your payment details on the Payment page, you are not affected. All data entered here was unaffected by the malicious activity.
    • If you paid by Direct Deposit or Zip between 6:21am on 23/06/2021 and 2:21pm on 24/06/2021, and did not enter details into the malicious module, you are not affected.
    • If you visted, interacted with or purchased from our website via any payment method including Credit Card, outside of these times, you are not affected.
    • We do not store any financial information from any customers. The customer information we do store includes names, addresses, email address and phone numbers, which was not compromised.

    FUTURE RESOLUTION:

    • To prevent this occuring in future, we have implemented and will continue to implement several security upgrades. In any event, we would always cover any loss that occurred to our customers via a Cyber Security threat.

    • We have taken this extremely seriously and to address any comment on our approach to this scenario, upon investigation this afternoon, I can confirm that a user posted a comment regarding this on OzBargain at 07:48am on 23/06. As it was on a previous deal post, I didn't see it, as evidenced by me replying on the 24/06 saying that our webmaster was looking into it. We have acted as quickly as we can, notified all relevant authorities, and ensured our customer communication is accurate and consistent.

    • Affected customers will be contacted via email following this post.

        I can understand your concern. However, the issue was not related to the payment methods themselves, rather the radial buttons on the page prior to that. All payments were and are secure. We're not activating PayPal at this time but I will raise it with senior management at the next review.

        •  

          Thanks luke,

          I'm not as tech savvy so if you could bear with me…is an audit of the website done to look for any malware or anything to that effect? - i.e. is there any chance that there is lingering malicious code?

          •  

            @Doey21: Yes, we conducted a full sweep, have implemented several significant security enhancements, and will continue to monitor the site with best practice, automated security features in place.

      So that is the official statement. Personally and on behalf of TechFast, we sincerely and unreservedly apologise for any and all inconvenience and worry caused. I understand the damage this may have caused, and will work hard to restore any lost faith in what we do. We got screwed over, but are doing everything we can to fix it.

        Man don't even sweat it Luke. These people that are busting your balls are the typical internet trolls one expects to see during this kind of incident. They were never going to be customers and are just revelling in the chance to grab a pitch fork and be jerks about it. Bigger companies than Techfast have been hacked and quickly forgiven and ironically these same trolls would be posting their negative nancy bs on the devices of companies that had data breaches.

        Shit happens. It's the exact reason why a credit card has an expiry date and can be easily cancelled and re-issued.

        I don't see a reason for anyone to seek compensation. If anyone is so entitled that they believe no inconvenience should ever fall upon them in their lives, they need to get off their keyboards and step out the front door.

        You have provided tens, if not hundreds of customers with reasonably priced RTX30 machines where they would otherwise have had to rely on scalper pricing.

              i never use spdif so i don't know. But I do have a good entry audio DAC (schiit fulla4) so I know that you don't always have to rely on the audio stuff comes with the mobo.

          I'm a little confused.

          So, Shopback had a security incident where some basic information like email address was taken. They were crucified by a crowd holding flaming torches.

          Techfast had code on their website from a third party that was stealing credit card numbers and nobody has bat an eyelid.

          What.

          How long was the code there for? How many customers were affected? Are you going to contact them?

          What are you doing about this security breach?!

              I'm going to guess with the popularity of $2-3k computers the past few months their turnover is definitely over $3m.

            • wasn't included at 1:29 AM AEST on 23 June. Anyone who ordered after this time may be affected.
            • was included at 1:57 PM AEST on 23 June. Anyone who ordered after this time is definitely affected

          Are you only affected if you ordered something? I presume you're OK if you didn't place any order and was just browsing?

          •  

            @Butters:

            Are you only affected if you ordered something?

            You're only affected if you entered your card details, even if you decided not to submit the order at the last minute.

            The script was set up in a way so that the moment someone entered their card number, expiry date and CVV it immediately uploaded those details to 2 different servers.

            I guess the silver lining here is that the attackers didn't seem to be interested in any other details like name, address, phone number, email, etc. although it's possible they could have already just copied the entire customer database if their initial attack vector allowed them that kind of access.

              On a side note, some people say Windows Defender won't slow down your PC because it's part of Windows, and that's just not true - it literally is an AV product (just not a particularly effective one) just like any other.

              •

                  •  

                    @m3ndL3: I wasn't aware of that. Would defender have picked up the issue in this case? (,trojan) they really could be anywhere.

                      @PlagueistheCheap: Yes and no. Without throwing the sample against Windows Defender we can't say for certain if it would detect the threat or not. I've previously worked with another anti-virus vendor and even now I still think Windows Defender is an excellent product.

                      Of course different anti-virus programs are subject to everyone's opinion and people have different requirements. Professionally I'd recommend Sophos with Intercept X in some places, while in others I'd recommend Crowdstrike and in other's physical firewall appliances.

    This whole premade debacle that is being fuelled by GPU shortages, really demonstrates that gamers and taste in aesthetics are the gawdiest, ugliest shit that should only appeal to a 6 year old kid loaded with sugar.
    Just give me the smallest (profanity) case that is functional, doesn't have lights and shit all over it and sits there and does its job. Runs cool and isn't noisy. This RGB thing is (profanity) just wtf. Get some tact.

      1. Smallest case
      2. Runs cool
      3. Isn't noisy

      You can have 2 and 3 at the expense of 1 without dropping more coin on the cooler and higher end board partner card. Smaller cases need some work to manage the heat and therefore sound.

        Reckon that would be applicable 15 years ago.

Last time I followed up on 19/06/2021 and didn’t even get a response this time. So disappointed. Can’t imagine if something goes wrong with the pc, how difficult it will to get support from your team.

      Well if what I read up above is true, they had malicious code on their website possibly stealing credit card info and haven't seemed to do much about it. I'm not sure support is something to expect from this lot.

        "haven't seemed to do much about it"

        They have said it has been removed, what else do you require them to do?

          Take everything offline whilst they conduct a Root cause analysis.
          Mitigate the threat from reoccurring.
          Send out communications to all people who might have been impacted.
          Report to the OAIC of a notifiable data breach.
          Apologise.

        Thanks Luke. I know once Luke is here, the problem gone. I can confirm I have received the postage refund. Thanks again for this.

    Hi Luke, based on the update where it states that 3070 cards have arrived, when should I be expecting the PC to be dispatched (ordered at the start of June)? Thanks for any feedback in advance.

    Malicious code that steals your credit card when purchasing? No thanks.

      Because for every one they sell, they get free credit card info.
