This isn’t the first time this website has done something like this. Last year, the same site leaked more than 1.2 million credit cards.
Another similar website did the same thing back in August 2021, releasing the details on more than a million credit cards on a number of hacking forums.
Researchers who have investigated the current leaked data set have found that there are at least 740,858 credit cards, 811,676 credit cards, (and 293 charge cards) involved. Some of these seem to be duplicates but one research company believes there are 2,141,564 unique entries.
‘data that has been leaked contains …card numbers … people’s names, emails, phone numbers, home addresses, expiration dates, and CVV codes’
The data that has been leaked contains not only card numbers but also people’s names, emails, phone numbers, home addresses, expiration dates, and CVV codes. Some of the cards are valid for many years to come.
The database also contains almost half a million unique email addresses from 28,000 unique email domains, which is a valuable resource for cybercriminals.
