Account brute force

Signals & Triggers

A brute force attack consists in an attacker attempting to break an account by testing a large number of passwords hoping to eventually manage to break in.

Highlighting such attempts is often done at the expense of parsing the application logs, which can end up being quite cumbersome and very time consuming.

Sqreen can highlight such attacks without any effort on your end and provide you with the compromised accounts, should the attacker succeed to log in one or multiple accounts.

Advanced details

Sqreen SDK enables you to track all login activities happening in your app.

Every minute Sqreen computes the signals and looks for unusual failed and successful login tentatives. When Sqreen detects several failed login tentatives on targeted accounts it will consider it as a Brute Force attack.

The signals computation happens on Sqreen’s backend based on the signals collected on all the instances of your applications. This collection happens asynchronously and is not slowing down your application performance.
