Okta Warns of Surge in Credential Stuffing Attacks Leveraging Residential Proxies
  • Okta has reported a significant rise in credential stuffing attacks against various online services.

  • The attacks, occurring between April 19 and April 26, 2024, leverage residential proxies, stolen credentials list, and automated tools.

  • Unlike traditional attacks from VPS providers, these are mainly launched from mobile devices and standard web browsers.

  • Residential proxies are being exploited by attackers to bypass detection mechanisms.

  • Cisco and HUMAN's Satori Threat Intelligence have also observed increased brute-force attacks and identified malicious Android VPN apps.

  • The situation underscores an urgent need for enhanced security protocols to thwart account takeovers and safeguard data.
