Account Takeover

Scott Adams - Riot Games


An account takeover occurs when a legitimate account is compromised to disguise illegitimate activity -- compromises can occur by hacking, phishing, and other means, such as account sharing. The main motivation is the potential profit to the unauthorized user(s). Account takeovers can be prevented by employing strategies such as brute force prevention (e.g. velocity checks) and enhanced account protection measures like two-factor authentication.
