The Central Bank and the Visa payment system have notified credit institutions of the data leakage of 55 thousand cards of bank customers. About this on Thursday, August 27, writes RBC, citing sources in the banking sector.

According to the interlocutors of the publication, data from customers of the Joom marketplace, which specializes in the delivery of goods from China, got on the Internet. There is no exact information on when the leak occurred.

It is noted that the database could be downloaded for free on a number of specialized sites and in telegram channels last week. It contained the first six and last four digits of the card number, its validity period, an indication of the payment system and the bank that issued the card, as well as the user’s full name, phone number, e-mail and address of residence.

A Joom spokesman spoke about the leak that occurred in March this year, but then it was about the data of “at least 1,000 users” in Russia and Belarus, and Joom reported on the elimination of the threat of further dissemination of information.

In July, Izvestia wrote that Alfa-Bank’s clients’ data had appeared on the darknet on the forum. The database contained full name, city of residence, citizen’s mobile phone, and account balance. The credit institution confirmed the data breach of several dozen of its clients.
