Data Brokers Are Trying to Sell Children’s Personal Data on the Dark Web

The Infinite Brief
A data broker on several dark web marketplaces is currently advertising stolen personal information relating specifically to children.

The data allegedly comes from hospitals and pediatricians.

The broker markets the data as a set of “fullz”; that is, full information on someone’s identity, or at least a significant enough moment to commit some form of fraud with it.

Each set of data costs $10 each, or $790 for 250 fullz, or $490 for 250, depending on which market a fraudster might buy from.
