Microsoft warns over uptick in password spraying attacks

Cyber attackers aren't just looking for software flaws, supply chain weakness, and open RDP connections. The other key asset hackers are after is identities, especially account details that will give them access to other internal systems.

CISA earlier this year warned that the suspected Kremlin-backed hackers behind the SolarWinds attacks were not just trojanising software updates, but also password guessing and password spraying administrative accounts for initial access.

More recently, Microsoft observed an emerging Iranian hacking group using password spraying against Israeli and US critical infrastructure targets operating in the Persian Gulf.
