If you have used an illegal streaming services to buy access to live TV or used other pirated services to get access to HBO Max, Netflix, and other similar services, you may want to keep an eye on the credit card you used.

Recently cybersecurity researcher Jeremiah Fowler found 600,000 records available online that included credit card information, passports, and other forms of identification.

According to his report, this database that was available online for anyone included:

  • Images of credit cards, customers, and passports or other government issued identification documents.
  • Records showing bank transaction payments that included IBAN numbers.
  • User logins, emails and passwords for accounts. Order confirmations showing the buyer’s name, email, and details of their purchase.
  • Software license keys for Microsoft, Norton, Kaspersky, Avira, Adobe Photoshop, and more.
  • Screenshots of the customer support dashboard, communications, purchase histories, account credits, and refund requests.
  • Records showing the sales of streaming accounts: HBO MAX, Netflix Premium, Disney+, and others.
  • Records showing the sales of social media accounts: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and others.
  • Amazon Prime accounts, and Amazon customer (buyer) and merchant (seller) accounts for sale.
  • Gaming platform and other account passwords and login credentials.

This particular website promised access to services like HOB Max, Netflix, Disney+, and more for as little as $1. Often these are accounts from legitimate subscribers who had their user names and passwords compromised so they could be resold.

This may seem like a cheap way to get access to different services or live TV but remember when you hand over your credit card, you have no idea what they will be doing with it.
