Details of 10K PNB debit and credit card compromised: Report

By : |February 26, 2018 0

Punjab National Bank, reeling under the Nirav Modi fraud, has been hit by another data breach, reported Asia Times. A Cyber Security firm says that it found details of over 10,000 credit and debit cards of customers of the embattled Punjab National Bank (PNB) up for sale for $4-5 per card on the internet for the last three months.

Rahul Sasi, co-founder of CloudSek, a Bangalore-Singapore based cybersecurity company said, “Close to 10,000 client details are for sale on the dark web which included names, emails, passwords, credit and debit card number, expiry dates, year, CVV number and the like. The user information of each card costs about $4 – $5.”

The cybersecurity firm said that the compromised user information was available on the dark web for close to three months now. Sasi further added, “As of now it is difficult to ascertain the way they got hacked. It might have been through credit card details stored on the website, phishing emails, computers being hacked and the like.”


Sasi said two sets of data were released: some with CVV numbers and some without. The last date stamp on the data is 29 January 2018, indicating that the details are still current for thousands of card customers.

The latest data breach has added to the wounds of PNB who is already hit by a Rs11,400 crore fraud disclosed by the bank involving diamond tycoon Nirav Modi.
