Bad Bots 101: A Real-Time ATO Attack

By / 11th Mar 2020

Bots account for more than 50% of all online traffic and are responsible for a range of good, bad and nuisance activity. Consumers and businesses alike are exposed to bot risks, with the attackers able to carry out a range of illicit and often fraudulent activity. At this year’s e-Crime and Cyber Security Congress, Netacea highlighted the significant, detrimental impact of bots targeting global enterprises with a real-time account takeover attack. The attack demonstrates the ease with which a threat actor can orchestrate an account takeover that bypasses traditional security measures.

Throughout the attack, we discussed the impact on various departments throughout an organisation – from security and operations to marketing managers – with reference to bot management best practices.
