Hackers are selling over 400000 credit cards on the Dark Web. Nearly 400000 credit cards are now being sold by Dark Web hackers through the online marketplace, Joker’s Stash, which is considered the largest card store on the Internet. All of these cards are priced at US $ 1,985,835 and charge around US $ 5 per card.
These hackers also claim that at least 30-40% of this data can be expected to have a validity rate. Of the total 397,365 cards, 198,233 cards, 49.9% South Korean cards and 49.3% American cards, are all issued by reputed banks and financial institutions.
The data contained in this credit and debit card is stored in Track 2, which is the magnetic stripe, which is presumably stolen from the POS terminal and ATM at the supermarket.
Since almost all this data is Track 2 data, this is not a breach of data from e-commerce websites, which is also why Track 2 data is not used on those websites.
Investigators say that this includes information such as bank identification number (BIN), account number, card expiry date, and carv verification value (CVV).
They further say that it is not possible to make online purchases from this data and that in order to make money through this it is possible to copy the data back to the empty card, collect the cash from the ATM and make purchases from the shops.
