Over 23 million stolen credit cards are being traded on the Dark Web
In the first six months of this year, threat actors put 23 million credit and debit cards up for sale on the dark web, a new report by Sixgill shows. Almost two-thirds of these payment cards (64.49%) were from the United States.
A very distant second, the United Kingdom accounted for 7.43% of payment cards, followed by India (3.78%) and Brazil (2.18%). The majority (57%) of stolen payment card data was from Visa cards, while 29% related to Mastercard and 12% to AMEX. Stolen payment card data is cheap, with offerings starting as low as $5 per card.
