Sorry if I overlooked this, I didn't see it anywhere.

If you recently bought something from Smith & Wesson on Black Friday, watch out. The gun manufacturer's website has been spotted hosting computer code that can steal your credit card details and forward it to hackers.

The code was injected into the Smith & Wesson's website on Nov. 27 and remained there until Tuesday morning,*according*to fraud detection company Sanguine Security, which first noticed the "payment card skimming" attack.

The data collection works via a Javascript program that'll run when a US-based browser loads the Smith & Wesson website. The program remains relatively dormant until the user goes to the checkout process, at which point the malicious Javascript will fully activate to create a fake payment form. Any payment card details entered will then be collected and sent off to a hacker-controlled website.
