Group-IB who were discovered this database estimated the vaule nearly 3.5 million USD and it is one of the big sale of Pakistani banks data on dark web in the past 6 months.
These stolen cards data now available for sale in Joker’s Stash , one of the biggest underground dark web market for stolen credit/debit cards.
All the available data are unauthorized digital copies of the information contained in the magnetic stripe of a payment card which belongs to single Pakistani Bank – Meezan Bank Ltd.
Interesting part is that all the cards came to sale with PIN number and the each card price was fixed as $50 which is pretty higher that normal card sale price $10 to $40 on dark web.
2 Different Dumps
First discovered dump contains 1,535 cards data with the title of «PAKISTAN-D+P-01» and 1,457 of which were issued by Meezan Bank Ltd and the card data was set up for sale on Jan. 24, 2019
