Darknet Private Market Selling Hacked Accounts

Wapack Labs is researching an active, darknet actor in a private market. The private market is a multisignature, escrow shopping system based in Europe. The darknet actor is currently advertising breached accounts on their site to include: Paypal, Amazon, Ebay, and Venmo, and has a 97.3% positive feedback rating. Banking information from several U.S. banks having accounts with balances of $10,000+ and $20,000+ are offered. The actor is also selling hacked social media accounts like Instagram and Snapchat. Hacked social media accounts are dangerous as they can be used to hide nefarious activity ranging from pranking to obtaining passwords to compromise banks and online retailers.

Wapack Labs has cataloged and reported extensively on carders in the past. An archive of related reporting can be found in the Red Sky Alliance portal.
