The last couple of weeks have seen tensions rising between Russia and
Ukraine, and along with it an increase in computer crime.
Sometime in the last 12 hours, a post allegedly by Anonymous Ukraine has
made claim to publishing "more than 800 million credit cards" by releasing
four archives Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards. Based
on the initial analysis by Risk Based Security, the number appears to come
to a total of 955,579 cards.
While such an attack does not appear to be directly related to the
political strife between Ukraine and Russia, it does raise significant
issues for card processors and consumers if the leak is legitimate.
Anonymous Ukraine has posted a short message to Pastebin that includes the
Today we publish the first part of our exposure of the international
financial system Visa, MC, Discover & Amex, enslaved people around the
world. More than 800 million credit cards. Over a trillion dollars.
Each of the four archives appear to have valid card numbers, bank routing
numbers?, and full names. The dump of information does not contain the
credit card CCV (Card Verification Value) or card expiry information.
Without this information, committing fraud with the leaked information
would be considerably harder.
At this time, there is no indication where the data comes from or if it is
from a single source or multiple. Risk Based Security and the DatalossDB
project will continue to examine the data and investigate in hopes of
determining more information about the breach.
