What is Credential Stuffing Attack?
Credential Stuffing Attack is a type of cyberattack where stolen account credentials typically consisting of lists of usernames and/or email addresses and the corresponding passwords (often from a data breach) are used to gain unauthorized access to the user accounts through large-scale automated login requests directed against a web application.
Suppose you have an email account email@example.com, and the password is Abc?123@ (relatively complex). For the convenience of memory and usage, all websites A, B, C, D, etc. apply this email address to register and the same password. Assuming that a hacker gets this email and password one day, the hacker will try to log in on major websites with this email and password, and your accounts registered with this email and password on websites A, B, C, D, etc. will be stolen.
