Romanian carders plead guilty to Subway hack
Two Romanian nationals thought to have been part of a gang that stole 500,000 credit cards from an Australian business have pleaded guilty to fleecing bank cards from 150 US Subway restaurants.
The pair admitted to participating in the “international, multimillion-dollar scheme” which saw them break into vulnerable merchant networks including Subway and swipe some 146,000 credit cards resulting in $10 million in losses.
The gang attacked both the unnamed Australian business and Subway by exploiting open remote desktop protocol (RDP) connections and implanting keyloggers on payment terminals. It was suspected the attack on the Australian business could result in more than $25 million in fraudulent transactions.
