Massive cache of Indian card data goes up for sale on dark web

Massive cache of Indian card data goes up for sale on dark web

The details of more than 1.3 million credit and debit cards - most of them from India - have been put up for sale on an underground forum.

The database, which has been on the Joker's Stash carding forum since 28 October, was spotted by cybersecurity firm Group-IB.

More than 98% of the card records belong to Indian bank customers, while about one per cent come from Colombian banks.

The crooks are selling the cards for $100 each, valuing the entire database at more than $130 million.

The dump contains Track 1 and Track 2 data, which Group-IB says can be used to produce cloned cards for cash out operations.

Ilya Sachkov, CEO, Group-IB, says: "This is indeed the biggest card database encapsulated in a single file ever uploaded on underground markets at once."
