Re: 2.5 billion?
@AnonymousMan, you seem to have read through the report pretty thoroughly. Does it go into details of how the authors collected their information ... more specifically, their sources? I would think some of this information would be classified by intel services, or dangerous to come by, a la investigating the arms industry.

2.5 billion?
"Rescator made roughly $1 million by selling over 150,000 cards to SWIPED, one of the largest online trading platforms; SWIPED itself made $6 million in one year."

http://krebsonsecurity.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/SWIPED-report-KREBSONSEC-1.pdf

I see in the report where SWIPED made $6 million SINCE 2011....but not in one year.  Do you have a different report and if so, can you provide the link?

Also according to Krebs, who references the same report, only 109,094 of the Target cards provided by Rescator were actually "good".  That's about 2%. 

How do we get from 109k cards out of 5m being "usable" to 2.5B being made?  Again, is there a more complete report that provides these details?
