DailyMotion falls to credential stuffing attack two weeks after Reddit had the same faith.
Video sharing platform DailyMotion announced on Friday that it was the victim of a credential stuffing attack, ZDNet has learned.
Credentials stuffing is a security term that describes a type of cyber-attack where hackers take combinations of usernames and passwords leaked
from other sites and use them to gain illegal access on accounts on another site.
According to an email sent out to impacted customers, and seen by ZDNet, the credential stuffing started last weekend, on January 19, and appears to have
been successful in some cases, with hackers gaining access to a limited number of accounts.
