Threat actors are using various attack vectors such as credential stuffing to steal usernames and passwords. Credential stuffing refers to an attack in which usernames and passwords leaked in previous data breaches are used to gain access to accounts created on other online services. These attacks use bots for automation to enter many username and password combinations into login pages across multiple online services.
