InvestBank UAE hack: Database containing credit card details and passport scans leaks online

The Investbank hack and data dump can’t seem to say out of the news. Jason Murdock reports:

A 10GB file has been released online that purports to hold sensitive financial data compromised from the InvestBank of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Upon initial analysis, the ZIP file contains tens of thousands of credit card numbers, names and addresses. There are folders listed as ‘Account Master’, ‘Customer Master’ and ‘Branch Master’. One spreadsheet named ‘Cards’ contains over 18,000 card numbers. While another folder contains 3,383 individual bank statements – all watermarked and labelled from InvestBank. In another file, called ‘Passports’, the internal files appear to include individual scans of ID cards, business cards, passports, insurance cards and corresponding customer headshots.

Has anyone attempted to verify whether these are new data and not a re-dump of a previous data dump from the hack?

Update: It appears that these are old data. I had that feeling…
