This report offers insight into large account takeovers trends that happened over the first quarter of 2020.
Netflix, Spotify, StockX, Hulu, and Houseparty stood out.
Netflix : Very large attack shortly after pandemic declared on 2020-03-11s.
Spotify : "Playlist" fraud. ATO'd accounts either sold for normal usage, or, playlist fraud used to make money.
StockX : Fraudulent purchases starting off the quarter.
Houseparty appears at the end of the quarter. Press (1,2,3). Possibly a false positive, but under strange conditions. Aggressive single-day runups like this are usually FP, but the tweets suggest real malicious account activity. However, the company suggests it is a misinformation operation.
