SentinelOne: Understanding – and combating – the mechanisms of ATO attacks

To effectively combat ATO attacks, it is important to understand the methods used by cybercriminals. Here’s an overview of some of the common techniques used in account takeovers:

  • Credential stuffing: attackers use automated bots to test stolen username and password combinations across multiple websites, taking advantage of ours’ propensity to reuse credentials.
  • Brute force attacks: cybercriminals use bots to systematically test different password combinations until they gain access to an account.
  • Phishing: Fraudsters trick users into revealing their credentials through misleading emails, text messages, or phone calls.
  • Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks: Hackers intercept and manipulate Internet traffic, allowing them to gain access to unencrypted credentials.
