HCMC – Data on more than 31,000 transactions using bank cards were breached and disclosed on RaidForums, a forum for database trading, on November 6, news site VnExpress reported.

The revealed information includes part of bank card numbers, and transaction time, venue and value.

The first six digits and four last digits of each bank card number were exposed on the forum. In addition, these transactions were allegedly conducted from June 29 to July 18, 2016.

A file with 5.4 million email addresses that purportedly belong to customers of the mobile phone store chain The Gioi Di Dong and another file with more than 61,000 email addresses in the format of username@thegioididong.com, which are supposedly the email addresses of The Gioi Di Dong’s staff, were also posted on the forum.

A representative of The Gioi Di Dong was cited by VnExpress as confirming that the information was not related to its customers or staff and that the firm’s network system was still operating as usual.

Two people whose information was breached noted they had carried out transactions with The Gioi Di Dong over the last two years. They expressed concern over the possible loss of their bank account information.

A security expert in HCMC stated that hackers might have more information than what they had posted on RaidForums.

Earlier, the data of 160 million Zing ID accounts were also disclosed on RaidForums, which currently has some 90,000 members.
