ZDNet reports that a hacker name as Reckz0r claimed on Twitter that he had targeted 79 banks for around three months and now has released a vast cache of 1,700 separate accounts relating to Visa and Mastercard credit card data. From the data included in the data dump: customer names, the debit or credit card type — Visa or Mastercard — along with postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses are all included. The hacker said he had hacked more than 50 gigabytes of data, and that this release is only a small unit of the total amount. The data cache may have been available online for more than a week ago on a hacker website.
