A user going by the name of “ExploitDOT” is allegedly selling 100,000 personal documents that were used to comply with the know-your-customer (KYC) regulations on cryptocurrency exchanges, as first reported by CCN. He posted the sale on July 17, 2018 on a sub-community (DNMAds) of Dread, which is a hidden Reddit-like community that operates on darknets such as Tor and “provides a platform for open community discussion without as much censorship and limitations.”
ExploitDOT claims that he was a vendor on Tor Carding Forum (TCF), which was one of the earliest and largest darknet forums focused on the trade of stolen credit card details, identity theft, and currency counterfeiting. TCF closed in 2014 following a hack. ExploitDOT was also allegedly a vendor on AlphaBay, a darknet marketplace with over 400,000 users that police shut down after a law enforcement action in July 2017.
