The stolen information was discovered on the darknet’s clandestine marketplace Marketo.
Data reportedly hacked from the athletic brand Puma is being offered off on the darknet subterranean marketplace Marketo. According to the ad’s creator, around 1 GB of data was taken from the firm.
According to Marketo admins, they are the operators of a well-organized “stolen data market,” rather than a conventional gang of ransomware that distributes harmful code to get into IT systems. The platform also allows its users to “make bets” on data theft, fostering competition amongst interested parties. Already, 157 hackers have expressed interest in purchasing Puma’s private data.
According to Security Affairs, the seized Puma dataset comprises the source code for internal control apps linked to the company’s product management platform. Cybercriminals can use this information to conduct a more complex assault on a company.
Experts believe that files from organizations might have been taken as a consequence of a data breach by a third-party software provider.
