Two new reports have found out just how much your data is worth on the Dark Web. Content marketing agency Fractl analyzed, over several days last month, all of the fraud-related listings on three Dark Web marketplaces — Dream, Point and Wall Street Market – the results of which were obtained via MarketWatch. MarketWatch indicates that an individual’s Gmail account can be purchased for as little as $1, while Facebook credentials go for around $5.20. Paypal accounts average $247.00. So, do you know how much your data is worth on the Dark Web? Take a look below.
Similarly, Top 10 VPN put out a report titled “Dark Web Market Price Index (Feb 2018 – US Edition)“. These statistics cited similar information with Paypal accounts going for $247.00 and Facebook at $5.20. However, it also referenced many other accounts, including:
- Online Banking Details: $160.15
- Credit Card Details: $50.00
- Credit Reports: $35.00
- Passport: $62.61
- Proof of Identity: $29.59
- Amazon Account: $9.00
- Walmart Account: $9.00
- Netflix Account: $8.32
More information can be referenced at the link above. These sobering statistics prove what we already know – to hackers, you are just packets of information to be bought and sold. YOU are a commodity, just like orange juice or pork bellies, and all priced for as little as ONE DOLLAR.
