Type:  White Paper
Length:  9 pages

Online credentials have been stolen and compromised for almost as long as the Internet has existed. But in the past decade, the frequency of credential theft has increased and the tools and techniques used by cybercriminals have evolved.

Theft of user credentials has ramped up significantly for a number of reasons including:

  • Users are reusing the same usernames and passwords across multiple sites
  • Automated tools can take stolen credentials and test them on other sites at a massive scale
  • Many customers have high value assets that are extremely lucrative targets for cyberattacks

In this white paper, explore one of the most common threats to retailers credential stuffing and learn how Shape works with major retailers to shut these attacks down.
