Late Monday evening, a new posting appeared on Joker’s Stash, which is believed to contain cards from the Wawa data breach. Joker’s Stash is a popular criminal market website for stolen payment card data, where card data is regularly dumped and released in batches for sale. The new batch announced on Joker’s Stash on Monday allegedly contains over 30 million payment cards named “BIGBADABOOM.” Joker’s Stash typically gives names to batches of stolen cards for sale that don’t directly relate to the source that the cards were stolen from. Fraud experts from Gemini Advisory have evaluated one of the batches that went up for sale and have stated that the cards appear to have been stolen in the Wawa breach announced in December.
