[state of the internet]/security Credential Stuffing: Attacks and Economies
Webinar: Credential stuffing targets media
January 2019 saw the public release of a massive collection of private credentials — more than 25 billion email address and password combinations. Though much of the user information was from older data breaches, the audacious data dump reflects the reality that the theft, abuse, and sale of username/password combinations is a thriving criminal business.
Media organizations, gaming companies, and the entertainment industry are among the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks. The people behind these attacks realize the value of an account, whether it’s to a streaming site, a game, or someone’s social media account. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to steal them.
During this webinar, we’ll share the recent research that digs into this trend, which has significant impacts for gaming, video, and entertainment companies. You’ll learn:
Why cheap tools and free tutorials lower the bar of entry for would-be criminals
How malicious actors turn data breaches into substantial profits on darknet markets
What businesses can do to detect and prevent credential stuffing attacks
