Account takeover (ATO) occurs when criminals use stolen logins to access user accounts without permission--typically credentials that have been exposed in a third-party breach. Using victims’ accounts, criminals can make fraudulent purchases, drain accounts, steal sensitive data, or move laterally within a target organization.
The vast majority of account takeover attempts are automated credential-stuffing attacks. However, SpyCloud customers report that 80 percent of losses come from just 10 percent of ATO attempts, which are highly targeted and challenging to detect.
