Over 290,000 US Driver’s License Records Has Been Put Up On Sale In The Dark Web

Over 290,000 US Driver’s License Records Has Been Put Up On Sale In The Dark Web

Using the name of NSA, a hacker has put up for sale on the Dark Web some data that contains the personal details and driver’s license information of over 290,000 US citizens which he had stolen after breaching the networks of several Louisiana organizations. The hacker has uploaded these data in The Real Deal, a underground marketplace. NSA says he extracted the driver’s license details from the stolen databases that contained information on driving violations. Also he claims the databases also held information about more serious crimes like murders.

“Disregard the price on this listing. Make me an offer that you and I can both agree to and I’ll create a private listing that you can use to purchase this database”, the beginning of the hackers ad states. It is noted the ‘NSA’ hacker has no history of selling on The Real Deal – and without the reputation or positive feedback from the users there the hacker may find it difficult to shift the data dump.
