Let’s know
What information went to hackers?
According to the report, this is the biggest hacking of this year. In this, the data of Track-2 has been stolen which is in the magnetic strip behind the credit or debit card. It contains complete information about the card holder. According to Data Analysis Group IB, 1.3 million bank card information is being sold on the hackers website Joker Stash.

A card is being sold on the website for about Rs 700. In the initial investigation, it is being said that apart from hacking, data has been stolen from card swapping machine and POS skimmer.
What is the way to avoid such a huge hacking?
Such a large hacking may involve bank information from you and any of us. In such a situation, the first task for you is to delete any payment wallet or shopping website on which your card is saved. Apart from this, change the PIN of your card immediately. Do not click on any link that came in the form of message or email.
If you use your bank app, log out and login only after resetting the password. Do not pay on any website that does not have https in its URL. Also, do not buy anything from an unknown website in the offer. Keep limited money in the bank account of the card you transact with.
