    Underground cybercriminals are attempting to decrypt a 50GB dump of encrypted debit card PINs that security watchers reckon were lifted during last year's high profile breach against retail giant Target. Security intelligence firm IntelCrawler reports that a miscreant claiming to be in possession of 50GB of PIN data secured with 3DES encryption posted a request for a hook-up with a PIN hacker on 3 January, offering a fee of $10 per line. IntelCrawler reckons the hacker is from Eastern Europe.
