Three Million Credit Cards Harvested and Sold on Joker’s Stash; Dickey’s BBQ Hack Undetected for Over a Year

  • Since about mid-2019, about three million credit card data were siphoned off from over 150 of the chain’s locations and are currently up for sale on dark web marketplace, Joker’s Stash.
  • The hacker selling them is advertising a “valid rate” of 90 to 100%, indicating that Dickey’s has only just become aware of the breach.
  • While there is still no federal data privacy law in the United States, Dickey’s will likely face substantial fines under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) given that the bulk of the activity was in that state.
