Brute Force Attack

In a Brute Force Attack, the adversary tries to guess the username-password combination repeatedly to gain access, without the risk of detection. Reverse Brute Force Attack may be unleashed through Password Spraying where multiple user accounts are sprayed with commonly used passwords such as “password”, “Password123” etc. Also, credentials obtained from dark web are used to hack other accounts that could very possibly be using the same password – a classic case of Credential Stuffing.
