Credential Stuffers Steal $300K from DraftKings Customers

Exploit: Credential Stuffing

Risk to Business: Extreme

Users of sports book platform DraftKings took a heavy hit last week with an estimated $300k lost to a credential stuffing attack. A company official confirmed the attack in a statement, saying that they believe that the incident stemmed from customers reusing login credentials that had already been compromised elsewhere. Bad actors gained access to several user accounts that they immediately took over, changing the passwords and enabling 2FA for a phone number they controlled. DraftKings has said that customers who lost money will be made whole but did not offer specifics.
