Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video Password spraying and credential stuffing, part of CompTIA CySA+ (CS0-002) Cert Prep: 2 Vulnerability Management.
- [Instructor] There are two other types of password attack … that can occur when users poorly manage their passwords. … These are password spraying and credential stuffing. … In a password spraying attack, … the attacker takes a list of commonly used passwords … and then uses them to try to attack many different accounts … at the same time. … For example, here's a list stored on GitHub … of 10 million commonly used passwords. … An attacker could take this list … and use it to attempt to log in … to as many accounts as possible. … If a target system does not prevent the use … of commonly used passwords, … chances are that the attack will eventually be successful … against at least one account. … The best defense against password spraying attacks … is to incorporate lists of commonly used passwords … into access control systems … and prevent users from selecting a password … that appears on the list. … Credential stuffing attacks are made possible … when users reuse the same password across multiple sites. …
