Insights Into Credential Phishing
Cybercriminals are quick to put hacked accounts to use, according to Agari by Help Systems. The researchers found that 91% of compromised accounts are accessed by attackers within one week, and half of these accounts are accessed within the first twelve hours. Additionally, 23% of phishing sites are using automation to test the authenticity of stolen credentials. Agari explains that criminals are efficient at escalating their attack once they gain access to a network.
