Huge cache of Pakistani payment card data appears on Dark Web

A huge dump of cards and PIN codes from Pakistani banks has gone up for sale on notorious Dark Web site Joker's Stash.

Threat intelligence firm Group-IB uncovered the new database, which holds a total of 69,189 Pakistani banks’ cards with a street value of approximately $3.5 million.

The Joker's Stash site is offloading the cards - 96% of which originated from Meezan Bank - for $50 per card. The premium price reflect the capture of the PIN card and mag-stripe data for making cloned cards.

The dump is the second big download of stolen card data from the Pakistani banking community over the past three months. In November 2018, Group-IB reported about massive leaks of 177,878 payment cards of Pakistani and other international banks. The banks affected by this breach included major Pakistani banks financial organizations such as, Habib Bank, MCB Bank Limited, Allied Bank Limited and many others.

The country's Federal Investigation Agency in November confirmed that customer card data from nearly all of Pakistan's major banks had been stolen in an unspecified cyberattack.
