Racker roubou dados de milhões de cartões de crédito
Apesar do erro de escrita (Racker), a notícia é muito relevante e já foi amplamente divulgada em diversos sites do mundo. BTW, o termo mais correto para este tipo de quadrilha é carders.
Coloco aqui algumas partes do que diz um documento da corte de New Jersey (USA) sobre o caso:
Defendant Albert Gonzalez, a/k/a “segvec,” a/k/a “soupnazi,” a/k/a “j4guar17” (“GONZALEZ”), resided in or near Miami, Florida.
Methods of Hacking Utilized by Defendants.
“SQL Injection Attacks” were methods of hacking into and gaining unauthorized access to computers connected to the Internet.
“Malware” was malicious computer software programmed to, among other things, identify, store, and export information on computers that were hacked, including information such as credit and debit card numbers and corresponding personal identification information of cardholders (“Card Data”), as well as to evade detection by anti-virus programs running on those computers.
Beginning on or about December 26, 2007, Heartland was the victim of a SQL
- 3 - Injection Attack on its corporate computer network that resulted in malware being placed on its payment processing system and the theft of more than approximately 130 million credit and debit card numbers and corresponding Card Data.
