Exploit: Account hacking.
Airbnb: Global, online marketplace for hospitality services.
Risk to Small Business: 2.111 = Severe Airbnb customers in the U.K. are taking to Twitter to report unauthorized account takeovers. Compromised users have noted everything from cancelled bookings and new appointments, to account lockouts and deletions.
Individual Risk: 2.571 = Moderate: Anyone with an Airbnb account should check their accounts for suspicious activity including booking cancellations, new bookings, or other changes. It’s likely that hackers accessed accounts by using previously stolen password information. Therefore, users should ensure that they are using unique, strong passwords for all accounts, and they should enable two-factor authentication whenever possible.
Customers Impacted: Unknown
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Eliminating password redundancies is a critical step in identifying the source of a breach. Without the help of an MSP or an MSSP that offers Dark Web monitoring solutions, it’s extremely difficult to understand how stolen data is being misused by hackers. Companies of all sizes need to help protect customer data by knowing what happens to their credentials in the event that they are lost or stolen.
ClearYolk to the Rescue: Monitoring the Dark Web for stolen credentials is critical for companies who want to provide comprehensive security to their organisation. Our Phishing service compliments that data with simulated phishing attacks and security awareness training campaigns to educate employees, making them the best defense against cybercrime.
