According to Gemini Advisory, information from Wawa's hacking leaked to the Dark Web this week at Joker's Stash, one of the largest and most well-known dark web sites for stolen credit cards.
A data breach hit Wawa, a convenience store / gas station, as hackers stormed over 850 Wawa stores and stole 30 million sets of payment statements, including those from Asian countries, making it one of the biggest payment card violations of all time.
According to Gemini Advisory, information from Wawa's hacking leaked to the Dark Web this week at the Joker's Stash Market, one of the largest and most well-known dark web sites for stolen credit cards.
Gemini has concluded that the infringement point for the BIGBADABOOM-III infringement is Wawa, the convenience store / gas station. The company first discovered it infringement on 10 December 2019.
"Major violations of this type are often in low demand on the dark web. This may be due to their rapid identification security researchers for the point of invasion ", said Gemini.
However, Joker's Stash uses the media coverage of major violations like this to bolster its credibility as the most notorious compromised credit card vendor.
Wawa said there were reports that credit card information from its customers might be sold on the dark web.
Based on Gemini analysis, the original set of databases associated with "BIGBADABOOM-III" consisted of almost 1,00,000 records.
While the majority of these registrations come from US banks and are linked to cardholders based in the US, some records are also linked to card holders from Latin America, Europe and several Asian countries.
"Cardholders who don't stay on USA they may fall victim to this breach when traveling to the United States and trading at Wawa gas stations, "the report said.
