DOJ Takes Down Black Market for Millions of Stolen SSNs

DOJ Takes Down Black Market for Millions of Stolen SSNs

Internet security is no joke. RE: Millions of stolen SSNs.

Since 2015, infamous website SSNDOB has listed more than 20 million SSNs, credit card numbers, and other valuable info of unfortunate Americans. It’s estimated that the marketplace has generated more than $22MM in Bitcoin transactions since its inception.

Fortunately, the US DOJ has finally seized the site and pulled it from the internet. Next time you get scolded about potential phishing attempts from your IT specialist, it might be worth paying closer attention!

First crypto and NFTs, now SPACs — now what are we going to spend our money on this summer?!
