The SOCRadar Dark Web Team detected a significant data breach on a hacker forum, revealing the leak of 1.9 million credit card details by BidenCash, a carding market initiated in June 2022.
Since its emergence, BidenCash has actively promoted its marketplace in various hacking forums and occasionally leaked credit card data to the public for use by other threat actors. The card information featured by the BidenCash marketplace is typically acquired through diverse website skimmer and infostealer malware attacks.
To boost its newly launched site in 2022, the marketplace disclosed 8 million lines of information, including email addresses, along with approximately 6,700 credit cards.
In October 2022, the BidenCash carding marketplace released another advertising dump, expanding the size of the leak to include details on 1,221,551 credit cards.
Fast forward to 2023, in February, BidenCash leaked approximately 2.1 million credit card details on a Russian hacker forum. The timeline illustrates a consistent effort and increase in the number of credit cards, proving the escalating impact of the BidenCash marketplace.
Details of the Latest BidenCash Leak and Threat Actor’s New Buyer Protection Method
BidenCash mentioned the 1.9 million credit card numbers in a recent post on a hacker forum, in which it also claimed to have implemented a buyer protection system.
According to the threat actor’s post, the system is intended to ensure the freshness of the data and penalize suppliers for stale materials via real-time tracking; the use of such method signals an evolution in the underground market.

“We exert maximum effort to ensure the safety of our clients and are ready to demonstrate the effectiveness of our buyer protection system. Our systems automatically and in real-time tracks publicly available cards on Telegram channels, Discord chats, and forums to prevent unscrupulous suppliers from using outdated material.
