Cybercrime Marketplace Leaks Over 2.1 Million Payment Cards

Carding marketplace BidenCash last week released information on more than 2.1 million credit and debit cards.

Notorious carding marketplace BidenCash last week released information on more than 2.1 million credit and debit cards.

Carding marketplaces, also referred to as card shops, are cybercrime websites that facilitate the trading and unauthorized use of stolen payment card details.

Active for less than a year, BidenCash has quickly become one of the top carding marketplaces, making a name for itself by releasing the details of hundreds of thousands of cards in June 2022. In October 2022, it released the details of more than 1.2 million stolen cards, for free.

The new data dump, the largest associated with the illicit portal so far, is meant to attract new customers, especially since most of the released cards are approaching expiration.

Roughly 70% of the leaked cards expire in 2023, cyber threat intelligence company Flashpoint has discovered. The firm also notes that half of the cards belong to US-based people or entities.

According to threat intelligence provider Cyble, the dump contains more than 740,000 credit cards and over 810,000 debit cards, as well as roughly 300 charge cards. Some of the cards expire in 2052, the company says.

The cards were released on a top-tier Russian-speaking dark web forum and included card numbers and expiration dates, CVV numbers, and bank names.

In the leak, BidenCash also included the personally identifiable information (PII) of the victims, such as names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers.

While the release of expired or about-to-expire cards might not seem too much of a threat, cybercriminals are known to purchase such information as means of gathering information on their potential victims.

“The presence of email addresses and full information (commonly referred to as ‘Fullz’ by cybercriminals) will make the victims of this leak vulnerable to other attacks, such as phishing, identity theft, and scams, long past the expiration of their card details,” Cyble notes.
