What are Brute Force Attacks:
Hacking attempts at
stealing user login credentials and key user details using bots.
All websites that have
user login forms and collect and store user data
Why is it done:
Hackers use brute force
attacks for two major reasons - Account takeovers and Carding
fraud. After hijacking user accounts, fraudsters can access all
personal data of the users, claim any rewards, make purchases
and get involved in similar frauds.
What happens when your website is a victim:
The loss of brand value
due to brute force attacks is huge as the customers' account
gets compromised. Moreover, the reconciliation for loss of
customers' reward points and other actions taken by the
fraudsters is a big overhead.
