State of the Internet / Security: Credential Stuffing – Attacks and Economies
The “State of the Internet / Security” report focuses on the hundreds of millions of credential stuffing
attacks that occur each day, especially those aimed at video, gaming, entertainment, and other media
The report describes tools and tutorials available online at little or no cost to criminals seeking to exploit
stolen username/password or email/password combinations, including All-in-One (AIO) applications
such as SNIPR.
It also looks at the thriving darknet marketplaces for stolen accounts, a virtual shopping mall for
credential abuse attackers. Akamai security researchers also recommend methods to reduce the threat
of credential stuffing attacks.
