Dailymotion Resets Passwords After Credential Stuffing Attack
Credential stuffing attacks are on the rise. The latest victim is video platform Dailymotion, which has forced users to reset their passwords after it discovered that threat actors were attempting to access user accounts using stolen login credentials for other websites. The credential stuffing attacks began on January 19 and continued through at least January 25.
The French company logged out affected users and sent them an email with information regarding the attack and instructions for resetting their passwords and regaining access to their account. It is unclear how many users were affected and if any accounts were actually compromised.
