Cybersecurity researcher Rajasekhar Rajaharia earlier this month discovered a Google Drive link on the dark web, which was given the title of “Credit Card Holders data”.
Links shared with Gadgets 360 include 59 axle files, including cardholders’ full names, mobile numbers, cities, income levels, and email IDs. Apart from this, it includes PAN card number, Employee details etc. However, the leaked data does not include information on bank account and victim’s card number etc.
Rajaharia told Gadgets 360 that he has verified some names listed in the axle sheet with the ID of his name on Linkedin and TrueColor. He has even found his own name in this list.
However, in this data there is no clear description of the banks whose cardholders’ information has been leaked in this, including the first swipe amount for most cardholders.
Rajaharia states that this data may be related to a third party who serves or leads the bank. This information was first made public by Inc42.
The exact information of when this data has been leaked is not clear at the moment. However, it may include information between 2010 and 2019.
