A threat actor is pushing out a new criminal card marketplace that lets users buy and sell stolen credit cards. To promote their site, the actor published one million stolen credit cards on hacker forums.
Carding is the process of selling and using stolen credit cards. The data from cards is stolen through various attacks and techniques, such as point-of-sale malware, magecart attacks, and trojans. The stolen credit card details are then sold on carding marketplaces to other threat actors and users.
Last week, a new criminal marketplace called AllWorld Cards leaked over a million credit cards for free as a way to get their name out. The dumped credit card data pertains to 2018 and 2019.
The user who posted the cards claimed that around 27% of the cards in their sample were still valid. A closer look at the data revealed that 48% of the cards are still valid, according to Italian security firm D3Labs.
“At present, the feedback returned to our analysis team is still limited, but they are showing an incidence close to 50% of cards still operational, not yet identified as compromised,” D3Lab wrote in a blog post.
According to another security company Cyble that also analyzed the data, the leaked credit card information includes names, addresses, phone numbers, CVVs, expiration dates, and more.
Cyble has analyzed 400,000 cards so far, and the top five banks that have the most number of cards are STATE BANK OF INDIA, JPMORGAN CHASE BANK N.A., BBVA BANCOMERS S.A., THE TORONTO-DOMINION BANK, and POSTE ITALIANE SPA.
You can check if your card was part of this breach by using Cyble’s AmIBreached service.
Although the service contains data from multiple previous breaches, if you found your information in the breach, it is wise that you immediately contact your credit card company to ask for a new credit card.
The All World Cards site launched in May 2021, and its dump has been met with positive attention from both threat actors and carders.
Currently, there are 2,634,615 credit cards in total on their site ranging between $0.30 and $14.40, with 73% of the cards costing between $3.00 and $5.00. The country with the most cards for sale is the US.
