Automation is constantly evolving, and recent advancements in attack tools and methods are demonstrating that malicious automation can be expected to have significant ramifications. Researchers have proven that automated tools can successfully predict a user’s new password based on analyzing older stolen passwords, which makes the probability of a data breach infinitely higher. A recent test had a malicious bot infiltrate a network, scan all systems and exfiltrate all of the available data within 15 seconds. There is a good chance that 2019 will be the year that these types of attacks become real. Make sure that your protections are in place.
