Hello everyone,

Do you recall our previous discussion about credential-stuffing attacks? In these cyber-attacks, hackers exploit one of your exposed passwords (perhaps from one of the frequent data breaches we’ve reported on) and attempt to access your other accounts, capitalizing on the unfortunate reality that many people reuse passwords across multiple platforms.

An 18-year-old Wisconsin man was recently charged with stealing over $600,000 from DraftKings customer accounts through a credential-stuffing attack. You can dive deeper into the story on The Register’s news article, HERE. Additionally, you can access the criminal complaint filed this week in the USA, HERE.

Remember, once the money is stolen, it’s often irretrievable. Therefore, the onus is on you to employ unique, robust passwords for each account, especially those linked to your financial details.

Our team is always here to assist you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any help or advice on creating strong passwords.

Stay safe,

Best Regards,
