What is credential stuffing?
Credential stuffing is when fraudsters create programs that attempt to use large numbers of stolen credentials to log into a client’s web-based services. This type of fraud is on the rise due to the high volume of credentials that are compromised through data breaches each year and made available for use, as well as consumers reusing usernames and passwords across online platforms.
Why is it important to monitor for credential stuffing?
When credential stuffing attacks are successful they lead to account takeover attacks. According to Aite, account takeover losses are the number one reported source of losses in the digital channel and nearly 20% occur in the mobile channel.
