Hackers auction 1GB of Puma data on the dark web
Puma SE, branded as Puma, is a German multinational corporation that designs and manufactures athletic and casual footwear, apparel and accessories, which is headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, Germany. Puma is the third largest sportswear manufacturer in the world.
Marketo, an underground darknet marketplace, is auctioning off data allegedly stolen from sportswear maker Puma. According to the author of the announcement, a total of about 1 GB of data was stolen from the company.
Marketo administrators said they are operators of an organized "stolen data marketplace" rather than the typical ransomware group that spreads malicious code to break into IT systems. The marketplace also allows its customers to "bid" on stolen data, thus creating competition between interested parties. Already 157 cybercriminals have bid to buy Puma's sensitive data.
According to Security Affairs, the stolen Puma data includes the source codes of internal management applications purportedly linked to the company's product management portal. That data could be used by attackers to mount a more sophisticated attack on the company.
According to experts, the organization's files could have been stolen as a result of a third-party software vendor's data breach.
