According to data analyzed by the Atlas VPN research team, gamers are hit with 14.02 million credential stuffing attacks daily. A successful credential abuse attack steals the victim’s account and puts the owner’s credit card information as well as in-game assets at risk. Worth noting – veteran players might have thousands of dollars worth of items in their game inventory. Credential stuffing is a cyber-attack where fraudsters use large numbers of stolen credentials to log into individuals’ or companies’ accounts. This cyber-attack type is on the rise due to the high number of data breaches in the past years. While credential abuse attacks are rarely discussed, data reveals that it is a wide-spread issue. Hackers attacked gamers a staggering 9.83 billion times from July 2018 to June 2020. In other words, players are hit with around 14 million attacks per day or 584 thousand attacks per hour.
