Attack Summary : State Farm Insurance Discloses Recent Credential Stuffing Attack
[Records Exposed: N/A | Industry: BFSI | Type of Attack: Credential Stuffing]

Exploited Vulnerability: Insurance provider State Farm has notified policyholders that it recently observed login attempts to user accounts that were symptomatic of credential stuffing cyber-attacks. The company reset the passwords of affected accounts and has sent notifications alerting customers of the situation.

According to reports, the attack was discovered by State Farm in July 2019 and no personally identifiable information (PII) was exposed. The insurance company serves more than 83 million U.S. customers, though the number of policyholders impacted by the attack has not been disclosed.

Remedy Actions Taken and Recommended Future Mitigation Strategy: The enterprise security team can no longer view insider threats and phishing attacks as the exclusive attack vectors for credential compromise. Increasingly, attackers are focusing their efforts on sites that deliver services to the individual in hopes that common credentials exist. How does an organization protect itself when it may not have been breached?

Our experts highlight multiple areas where security teams can hone their approach in anticipation of more credential stuffing attacks.

Augment security awareness training to explain “why” unique credentials are so important. Utilize credential stuffing attacks as proof points to demonstrate cyber hygiene objectives.
Require multiple forms of authentication that take location, the physical device/system asset, and the user identity into consideration. Re-authenticate users based on elapsed time and/or a change in these authentication parameters.
Review the need to provide email and external site access for every employee.
Restrict or eliminate access to applications, services, and sensitive data that do not pass these tests.
