A group of hackers from Russia posted 1 million credit card numbers on the darknet, claims on Thursday, August 5, the TV channel CNBC citing data from cybersecurity firm Q6.
It is noted that we are talking about the All World Cards group from Russia, which offers card data to other cybercriminals “for fraudulent transactions.”
At the same time, the publication does not provide evidence that these hackers are really connected with Russia. However, the TV channel provides detailed recommendations for protecting the data of its credit cards. These include, in particular, freezing a credit account and notifying your credit institution about possible fraud.
On July 28, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said that Russia has responded to 12 requests from United States law enforcement agencies for cyber attacks since 2020, while 80 Russian requests have remained unanswered.
At the same time, he recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin announced an initiative on a comprehensive program of measures to restore Russian-American cooperation in the field of information security.
A day earlier, US Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard Downing clarified that Russia is still at the head of the list of countries from whose territory cyberattacks are carried out. However, as Downing noted, the Russian authorities had nothing to do with them.
The issue of cybersecurity was also raised on the sidelines of the Russian-American summit in Geneva on June 16, where the leaders of the two countries agreed to begin consultations on this issue. Putin noted that the largest number of cyberattacks in the world are carried out from the United States, Canada and the UK.
