BY THE END of the weekend, 1,600 potential thieves had visited the
page, hailing from some 75 countries, with Indonesia, the United
States, and Romania topping the list.
"It's frightening how vulnerable we are, and how quickly this
information gets around," said Avivah Litan, fraud analyst with
Clements, who operates antifraud site CardCops.com, plans to locate as
many individual IP addresses as he can. He will then inform Internet
service providers that their customers are likely participating in
He also plans to share his data with the FBI and U.S. Secret Service.
"We caught a lot of people in this net. Word is going [around] that ID
process will take place. Just identifying half of them will be a
deterrent," he said. "We want the carders to know we're coming."
The Web page Clements produced included fake data that mimicked the
kind often left accidentally on the Internet by e-commerce merchants.
He then had people he trusted call attention to the Web sites in chat
rooms that are known havens for credit card thieves.
Then he sat back and watched, logging the IP address of every computer
which visited the Web site.
Tracking the physical location of IP addresses can be tricky business,
but Clements used a company named Nami Media Inc. to trace back
addresses to originating countries, and in some cases, cities. In
this case, Nami Media acts as a reseller of tracking information
provided by Digital Envoy.
Nami Media's CEO, Gary Mittman, said technological advancements and
plain old hard work has refined such IP tracking to the point where
Hacks, Viruses & Scams
. Korean firm gives hackers a chance
. Year-old hole exposes credit cards
. Bug of the Day
. Step inside the world of hacking
"It's a mix of a variety of things, including crawling back up the
line with spiders. There's relationships with ISPs. And there's 10
guys whose full time job it is to update systems with global database
information. They keep it as accurate as they can," Mittman said.
Clements' results are certainly consistent with the anecdotal
impressions merchants have about credit card fraud hot spots, Litan
"I know they have strong crime rings in Indonesia and Romania," Litan
said. "These two countries keep coming up when people talk about
About 600 surfers from Asia hit Clements' site, almost 400 from
Indonesia. Another 500 hits came from Europe, with 133 from Romania,
nearly 80 from Turkey and about 40 from Bulgaria. In North America,
some 400 hits originated in the United States and 80 in Canada.
"What this shows is that these guys work at light speed, and if you're
going to war with them, you can't move in weeks or months," Clements
