In mid-December 2019, hackers successfully hit Wawa, a popular US convenience store, stealing millions of credit numbers.
In their public statement, Wawa said they discovered the malware on December 10th and resolved the issue just two days later. Despite Wawa’s speedy response, the data has already been found for sale on the dark web.
According to several experts, the dark web market is one of the more notorious marketplaces for stolen credit card data. How many cards were available is unknown but estimates place the hack at exposing 30M sets of payment records.
According to Wawa, only credit card numbers were stolen. No debit PINs, credit card CVV2 (security code), or personal info was stolen.
