1 Million Stolen Credit Cards Landed On The Dark Web
The Russian cybercriminal group released 1 million stolen credit cards on the Dark Web as a sign of their entrance into the market.This marketplace made its debut in May 2021 and is currently present on the dark web and a Tor channel. The information the group posted was reportedly obtained between 2018 and 2019.
An intelligence organization known as Cyble took notice of the act during their “routine monitoring of cybercrime and Dark Web marketplaces”. They stated that the following information is included in the credit cards: credit card number, name, CVV, expiration date, country, state, city, ZIP code, address, phone number, and email.
Cyble also confirmed that AllWorld.Cards is a relatively new player in the dark web scene. The sale of credit cards, which AllWorld.Cards deals in, just like any business operation undertaken on the dark web is a very dangerous operation.
In recent times, cybercriminals have developed various ways of acquiring credit card data.
Practices cybercriminals use
Their most popular practices for acquiring such information include; Magecart attacks, data-stealing trojans, phishing, and Point-of-sale (PoS) attacks.
Another security firm, CyberSixgill reported another threat. The firm stated that over 45 million compromised credit cards were sold on the dark web during the 2nd half of 2020. These cards, which are usually purchased by online fraudsters are then used for online purchases. And the fact that they're used online makes them more difficult to trace.
Cards Still In Operation
According to reports, the cards which AllaWorld.Cards offered to other cybercriminals was to increase traffic on their site. Remember, cards were available for free on the platform.
Of the one million cards which were dumped on the marketplace, it's not known how many are still active. However, a recent report by D3 Lab indicates that from a random sampling of around 98 cards, 27% are active. Again, 50% of the cards were still operational and untouched.
Again, the information didn't belong to just one country. The fraudsters invaded countries from all over the globe.
