BidenCash is a newly detected website that publicly and illegally sells stolen credit cards.
Biden’s name tells you something since it is named after the current US President, Joe Biden. This may be due to the authority the name implies, or perhaps as a form of mockery towards the president.
A recently created credit card website known as “BidenCash” is trying to gain notoriety by leaking sensitive credit card information from the hacked identities they have.
At the end of April, the platform was initially set up, but its offerings were initially kept at a lower level because the platform’s infrastructure was not yet ready to support large-scale operations. ladder.

BidenCash also provides a validity rating for new sales, with the score being constructed after evaluating 20 random cards from a new batch of sales. According to BleepingComputer, each new listing is revisited once a week for a new validity check, and if the rating changes significantly, the listing is removed from the directory entirely.

In a test conducted by BleepingComputer, it was discovered that online shoppers can buy credit cards for as little as $0.15 each. The file contains nearly 8 million lines in total, but not all of them contain credit card information.
