A new underground credit card marketplace, All World Cards, took the cybersecurity and the cybercriminal worlds by storm on August 2, 2021 when it released the details of one million stolen credit cards on the dark web – for free. Through this leak, All World Cards proved and promoted their “solution,” i.e. compromised credit card information, to potential “customers,” i.e. the web’s rogue elements. It was a successful marketing campaign. Today, All Word Cards boasts close to three million credit card records.
The stolen credit card data includes credit card details such as name on card, card number, expiry date, and CVV number, as well as owner information such as snail mail address, email address, and cell or landline number. To offer you an improved understanding of the risks involved in such breaches, we took a closer look into the data pertaining to the one million stolen cards.
