The U.S. consumer banking industry faces nearly $50 million per day in potential losses from credential stuffing attacks, according to the 2018 Credential Spill Report from Mountain, View, Calif.-based Shape Security.

“Criminals harvest credentials from data breaches and then test them on every website and mobile app imaginable. A small subset of those credentials unlocks accounts because most consumers reuse passwords across multiple sites,” the report revealed. Criminals then tap those for different types of fraud from unauthorized bank transfers to illicit purchases.
