Credit card details worth nearly $3.5 million put up for sale on hacking forum

In the past month, three large collections of stolen payment card data have been uploaded to a major underground marketplace. Two of the dumps involved data on 69,189 Pakistani payment cards, including PIN codes. The cards were offered for $50 per unit, which could enable the criminals behind the dump to rake in about $3,5 million.

A third collection, dubbed the “DaVinci Breach,” contains info on payment cards of over 2.15 million American bank customers. One cybersecurity company that studied this dump, believes it to be legitimate. It is still unclear how criminals obtained the information.
