The Anatomy of Account Takeover Attacks
Bad bots are on every website with a login page. Even yours. Hackers and fraudsters use bots to validate sets of login credentials, gain access to credit card data, and sell personally identifiable information on the dark web. They also use stolen account data to transfer money, purchase goods, or spread a specific political agenda.
In this account takeover study, Imperva now sees bad bot traffic on 100 percent of all monitored login pages. This indicates that every website is being hit by account takeover attempts.
