Wawa customer data exposed during hack now sold on dark web
Customer data exposed during a malware attack against convenience store chain Wawa have appeared on Joker’s Stash, a marketplace on the so-called dark web for stolen credit card information.
Hackers who run Joker’s Stash began advertising the data’s availability on Monday, cybersecurity firm Gemini Advisory said. The ad said Joker’s Stash would offer 30 million debit and credit card records from U.S. customers across 40 states and more than 1 million global customers. The records surfaced Monday under the title “Bigbadaboom-III,” the firm said.
“Major breaches of this type often have low demand in the dark web,” Gemini said in its analysis of the exposed records. “This may be due to the breached merchant’s public statement or to security researchers’ quick identification of the point of compromise.”
