Russia closes 4 largest dark web markets for credit card theft and threatens the rest



Credit cards are among the things that are easy to hack or hack into their data, and there are many sites that specialize in displaying stolen card data, and the largest of these sites is located on the dark web, where they show free card data for public use, which causes a lot of damage to owners and you lose a lot of money.




These sites have been shut down and tried to shut down from time to time. The Russian Interior Ministry has taken strict measures against a group of dark web sites, this time by shutting down black market sites specializing in dealing with credit cards stolen, and closed four sites at once, which is the Trump's market Dumps aka TDStore, UAS Store, Ferum Shop and Sky-Fraud Stolen Card Forum.


The Ferrum Shop was the largest market for stolen credit cards in the world before it was confiscated and was the main target of the Russian authorities. While Trump’s Dumps specializes in the sale of hacked paper data and has made $ 4.1 million since its launch in October 2017, it uses an image of former U.S. President Donald Trump under the slogan “Make Dumps Great Again”.




Sky-Fraud was a forum where hackers and their customers communicated and shared money laundering tips. After the Russian authorities took over the site, they left a hidden message in the forum's source code, "Which one of you is next?" As it did with UniCC, which at the time was the largest credit card market in the world and stole $ 372 million in transactions.


As you can see, credit cards are easy to hack their data by just guessing, and there are many sites that are hacked and the credit card data is stolen from them.
