Stolen UK Identities selling for just £10 on the dark web

Personal data which was stolen from UK Citizens is for sale on the dark web for as little as 10 Sterling, giving hackers the possibility to obtain enough data to carry out online fraud.

The so called “The Fullz” – a full identity package containing names, addresses, online passwords and banking data is being listed on several black market websites.

Researchers say that this illicit trade of data is being boosted by the never ending hacks such as the hundreds of millions of people’s data which was exposed through breaches at firms including the British Airways, Marriot Hotels and Facebook.
