The US Department of Justice reported that the joint efforts of law enforcement agencies from the United States, Germany, the Netherlands and Romania allowed to liquidate the Slilpp marketplace, where criminal groups have exchanged and traded stolen credentials for many years.Since 2012, Slilpp has worked on multiple domains, both on the darknet and the public internet. On the site, anyone could register an account and then start trading hacked accounts.
According to the Ministry of Justice, over the nine-year history of Slilpp, the site has sold more than 80,000,000 credentials belonging to more than 1,400 companies. So, the site traded accounts of PayPal, Wells Fargo, SunTrust, Amazon, Verizon Wireless, Xfinity, Walmart, as well as credit cards from various banks.
Investigators say the victims’ losses exceed $200,000,000 in the United States alone, and the total damage from the trading platform has yet to be calculated.
The FBI discovered and confiscated the servers and domain names that hosted Slilpp’s infrastructure.
More than ten people associated with the marketplace have reportedly been arrested and charged, but there are no details of these arrests yet.
Let me remind you that we also talked about the fact that Ukrainian cyberpolice neutralized one of the world’s largest phishing services.
