A recently launched carding site called “BidenCash” sells credit card details and information about their owners. The platform was created at the end of April, but has a small amount of data, since the site infrastructure is not ready for large-scale operations.

On June 16, BidenCash administrators decided to distribute a CSV file containing the following data for free to promote their platform:

  • The names;
  • Addresses;
  • Phone numbers;
  • Email addresses;
  • Credit card numbers.

In total, there are about 8 million lines in the file. According to the Italian information security company D3Lab, the database contains information about 6,600 credit cards. The database also includes more than 3 million email addresses that can be used for phishing and account hijacking.

The researchers found out that a cybercriminal can buy credit card data for $0.15 on the website. BidenCash includes a search filtering system based on the following indicators:

  • country;
  • bank;
  • CVV code;
  • email address;
  • card type;
  • the cardholder.

The cardholder should pay attention to the withdrawal of funds and inform the bank of any suspicious actions. Setting payment limits is a good way to prevent a cybercriminal from using stolen cards.

Banks now offer a virtual card that the user can easily close. There is also a one-time card that is automatically closed after making one purchase. Using multi-factor authentication will also help protect your online banking account.
