Credential theft is a lucrative attack vector, responsible for some of the most widely used techniques, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) hackers deploy to breach organizations and steal sensitive information. It often takes only one set of credentials to gain unfettered access to an organization’s infrastructure. After establishing an initial foothold in the network, cybercriminals can then move laterally; place backdoors, RATs, and other software to achieve persistency; and exfiltrate employee or customer data for resale or to utilize for their own financial gain.
In this digital age, organizations make use of multiple authentication mechanisms, including physical keys, tokens and cards, online session cookies, and digital website certificates. However, all of these mechanisms share a common vulnerability -- they are all prime targets for hackers.
In terms of enterprise security, the most widely used and most easily compromised type of authentication is login-password credentials, actively fuelling this flourishing underground industry. The cybercriminal practice of trading compromised login-password credentials is booming due to the vast number of tools and techniques that can be used to access and log in to devices, websites, and online applications. In addition, readily available malware kits dramatically lower barriers to entry, nurturing newer and more sophisticated attack tactics, techniques, and procedures.
