Details of about 700 million of which were uploaded on file sharing sites and linked to archives of the data from two Pastebin posts. These archives, 300MB in size, contained a mix of account details and magnetic-strip information for MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express cards, it was claimed. There’s been some speculation that the data was sourced in part from hacked sales tills in Target stores across the US – some senior politicians blame hackers from Ukraine for infiltrating the retail chain’s computers to swipe 40 million or so cards.
