Dark Web Merchants are selling thousands of stolen credit card numbers

By stvleong | Steven Leong | 30 May 2020

Cyble Research Team has launched a new huge credit card data dump for sale on the dark web.


New research by the cybersecurity company, Cyble Research Team, reported that data for over 80,000 credit cards were placed up on the dark web for sale on May 29. The data from those cards seems to have been obtained from various countries around the world.

The data breach included credit card information from different nations, such as the United States (33 K), France (14 K), Australia (5 K), United Kingdom (5 K), Canada (2 K), Singapore (1.2 K) and India (1.3 K), according to the announcement.

According to Cyble 's details they provide both Visa and Mastercard.

The price of each credit card, which includes the cardholder 's name, CVV code and expiry date, is $5 per device, payable in crypto. This price is whatever the value of each card.

Fact-address information leaked in data dump

The country classification was unveiled because of the leak of billing information, according to the report. This data included the address of each card holder, making it easier for the cybersecurity company to decide each card's country origin.

Where the hackers stole the data from is not clear, but Cyble believes it might have come from a phishing website or an online store that the hackers managed to breach.

Cyble built a search engine so that people could test if their personal details on the dark web was leaked. The database includes more than 40 billion documents in total.

Hackers move into the dark web to sell stolen data

The study comes after the cybersecurity company detected and reported another major breach of data, containing more than $1,000 in Indian Truecaller records for sale on the dark web.

Cointelegraph posted on May 15 that in exchange for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), anonymous hackers had taken data from over 129 million Russian car owners and released it on the darknet.

Also, a group of hackers infiltrated the Ethereum.org website and allegedly placed the database up for sale for the three most popular crypto hard wallets.
