A Hacker Sold 63,000 Cards’ Data For Cryptocurrency

The 26-year-old hacker Grant West from Great Britain used phishing attacks to steal the data of 63,000 bank cards by sending emails in the name of a food delivery company, and gullible victims entered their cards’ numbers to order non-existent food. After obtaining the data, Grant West sold it on DarkNet platform Alpha Bay. The thief was sentenced to 10 years and 8 months in prison, while his bitcoins worth $600,000 are taken away.
