A resident of Minnesota has been sentenced to 50 months in prison for identity theft and selling personal data of victims on the Dark Web cybercrime marketplace AlphaBay, says the US Department of Justice (DoJ).
Between November 2015 and May 2016, Aaron James Glende was reportedly found operating on AlphaBay under the name IcyEagle, with 300 listings advertising stolen bank logins and other confidential details.
A DoJ release says an undercover FBI agent, posing as a buyer, tracked Glende down on the Dark Web, where all types of stolen goods are sold under hidden identities. When arrested, Glende was said to be in possession of 944 stolen bank account usernames and passwords, 386 credit card numbers, 123 bank account numbers, and more.
