Identifying compromised credit cards

I just received news of a new Team Cymru no-cost service for worldwide Financial Institutions.

Their BIN ('Bank Identification Number') feed comprises a near real time list of accounts and credit cards that have been identified as being compromised. This data comes from Team Cymru's unique insight into the Underground Economy.

Representatives of Financial Institutions can email with details of their BIN/IIN numbers. Team Cymru will provide access to a secure web portal where Financial
Institutions can obtain a regularly updated list of their own compromised accounts. Details of the compromised accounts of other Financial Institutions will not be available.

for further details of this new service.

Team Cymru provide no cost data sets and services to the community. Take a look at their site for details of the extensive work they do for the security community as well as further advice, data and tips to help you make your networks more secure:
