Passwords Passwords Passwords

Do not repeat your passwords. We repeat: do not repeat your passwords! A recent wave of credential stuffing attacks is compromising accounts. Hackers are using bots that blast single instances of stolen usernames and passwords across multiple sites. 

Using the same password on multiple sites leaves you vulnerable to this attack. In some countries, this dangerous traffic is outpacing legitimate login traffic! But what can you do?

Defending Against Credential Stuffing

Unlike passwords, cybersecurity best practices are best repeated often! 

  1. Don’t Reuse Your Passwords – Instead, use a password manager to help you create and store unique passwords.
  2. Enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Where Possible – We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: MFA is one of the best ways to secure your accounts. 
  3. Strong passwords are harder to steal – Instead of a pass “word” try a pass “phrase” instead. These are longer while being easy to remember. For example, H0wIsTh3Lee$han0kTeamSoC00lAndT@lented?! (or whatever you’ll remember!)
