The briansclub.cm website was recently hacked. The site is known for reselling stolen credit card data. Hackers have also used the website to collect Bitcoin payments. Although the site administrators do not know who the perpetrators are, the attack is likely to shake up the Dark Web community.
BriansClub is a phishing site
During the first three years of operation, BriansClub has successfully hacked both brick-and-mortar and online retailers. The site has been linked to more than nine million stolen credit card records. Krebs reports that the thieves are reselling the stolen data to online criminals, earning a percentage of each sale. However, it is not clear exactly how the credit card data is stolen. Krebs reports that the attackers steal the credit card numbers using data-grabbing malware and skimming devices. Then, they upload them to BriansClub and resell them for a profit.
BriansClub is one of the largest black market sites for stolen credit card data. In 2015, hackers stole 26 million payment card details from brick-and-mortar retailers and sold them on the site. The site is a popular destination for hackers to sell the stolen data, but it has also been hacked itself.
It resells stolen credit card data
A website called BriansClub has been hacked, exposing stolen credit card data. The site posts information about almost eight million stolen cards uploaded in 2019 alone. The thieves use the stolen card numbers to make fake cards that they can use to make purchases online. These cards can be resold to other criminals who make huge profits from the stolen information.
The site began with about 1.7 million card records, but has since added over nine million. In 2016, they added 2.89 million records, then 4.9 million in 2017, and 7.6 million in January and August of 2018. The company estimates the stolen card data to be worth $414 million. Krebs claims to have discovered the breach while on vacation in Australia, scanning his email inbox. The email contained a link to a website where criminals can buy and sell stolen credit card information.
It has been hacked
Yesterday, news broke that the popular online card seller BriansClub was hacked. A total of 26 million credit card numbers were taken from the site. When these numbers are crunched, they’re worth a reported $414 million. The data was obtained using data-grabbing malware and skimming devices. The hackers used the information to commit online fraud.
According to Krebs, the hackers who ran BriansClub have sold almost $126 million worth of stolen credit cards. The site’s owners also use Brian’s likeness and image to market their nefarious products. The data was stolen from retailers over a period of four years. Many of the card numbers are still valid.
It has received Bitcoin payments
A report in Gemini has challenged the claims of the administrator of BriansClub.com that the site received more than 1,000 Bitcoin payments in the last five months. This amounts to more than USD $40,000 in Bitcoin payments. The report notes that most of the payments were relatively small. However, it is important to note that BriansClub has not responded to several requests for comment.
BriansClub is a well-known underground store that sells compromised payment card data. This site offers stolen payment card information, including CVV kits, compromised cards with high validity rates, and PII. A sign-up form on the BriansClub website requires no referral or identification, and once verified, users are required to deposit a balance within five days.
