Account Takeover (ATO) refers to the unauthorized access and control of a user’s account by an attacker. In an ATO attack, an adversary gains access to a legitimate user’s account credentials (such as username and password) through various means, including phishing attacks, malware, credential stuffing, social engineering, or exploiting vulnerabilities in authentication mechanisms,ATO attacks can have severe consequences for both individuals and organizations, including financial losses, reputational damage, legal liabilities, and regulatory penalties. To mitigate the risk of ATO attacks, users and organizations should implement strong authentication mechanisms, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), regularly monitor account activity for suspicious behavior, educate users about phishing and social engineering threats, and promptly respond to security incidents by resetting compromised credentials and conducting thorough investigations.
