While our personally identifiable information (PII) might be priceless to us, it really doesn’t cost much on the dark web. According to a recent study by Privacy Affairs, your data is worth about $1,010 on the dark web. This reflects a full range of documents that enable identity theft.
Other personal data doesn’t cost that much. For example, your credit card details with related information cost as little as $14-$30 in a darknet marketplace. Hackers can sell your online banking login credentials for about $40.
The affordability of your information is unsettling. For example, according to Privacy Affairs, a forged US driver’s license of average quality costs just $70. Stolen PayPal account details go for about $198.56. Even worse, a DDoS attack with 10,000 to 50,000 requests per second costs just $10 for one hour.
