Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! Hacker Details Leaked (along with others) Hacked, Thousands of Credit Cards and Accounts Leaked by Wagas.

From the post:

The year 2016 has been hard on internet users and websites alike since more than 1,076 data breaches have occurred. The latest one is previously known as, a Dark Net platform where hackers and cyber criminals sell hacked and stolen accounts. Recently, someone decided to take care of the stolen data stored on’s server by stealing thousands of accounts and putting it for sale online – But days after the hackers decided to leak the data to the public.

The hackers behind the leak claim to have leaked 16,000’s registered accounts, 15,000 user accounts which were stolen from other sites and stored on the hacked servers and around 9000 credit card data. Hacked-DB, the data mining company who first discovered the data contacted HackRead with an in-depth analysis according to them the leaked data is legit and stolen from platforms across the web. The dumped data contains 16,566 user accounts with email addresses and their encrypted passwords, 9,000 accounts from platforms like Uber, cPanel, WebMail, GoDaddy, Twitter, PayPal, Amazon and more. (The 9,000 accounts were available on for sale.)

The analysis also revealed sensitive data dumped containing personal and credit card data of 5,000 users including ID card numbers, social security numbers, credit card numbers along with their CVV codes, type of card, zip code, users’ date of births, name or the state and city, phone numbers, usernames, email addresses, price and date of purchased.

“Hacked-DB has detected a data breach on website. The leaked data contains user account information and full credit card details, credit number, CVV, expiration date, holder name, credit type etc. the website was down for maintenance after the data breach but now it is back online,” said the company’s representatives.

Just for conversation, let’s assume you want to traffic in stolen credit card information. Not that you would but just for conversation.

Question: As you are about to engage in credit card fraud, would you record your true name, address, credit card information on a website that traffics in stolen credit card information?

Question: Have you read any stories lately about credit card information being stolen from websites?

Question: Do you have any uneasiness about sharing your credit card information on a site owned and operated by self-professed criminals?

Unless all the 16,000’s registered accounts turn out to have 1060 West Addison (Wrigley Field, Chicago) addresses and equally bogus other information, whatever happens to’s clients is well deserved.

Law enforcement agencies are likely sharing that data by geographic areas even as I write this post.

If you ever decide to become a criminal (not recommended), try to follow Dogbert’s advice in this chain letter cartoon.
