REPORT : 2022 Q1
This report offers insight into large account takeovers trends that happened over the first quarter of 2022.
FYI: I now have a mailing list for this project 👇
- Discord has always sustained ATO complaints over the long term, but it sometimes hits or exceeds the volume of Instagram's activity. Considering the size disparity in customer base it may be worth studying Discord further and asking why their volume is on par with one of the largest social networks. That said, it has trended downward after a painful Q1.
- Twitter shows a slight bump in ATO from what looks like a group spamming an NFT.
- Subway appeared with low volume, which I'm not sure I've seen before.
- Cryptocom : Possible a false positive auth outage, but seems less likely due to reports of losses. Unsure cause.
This is a total summary of all tweets meeting criteria. NOTE: There is a Spotify outage that causes a false positive in the below data.
This is a breakdown of totals per
@mention which helps find outliers.
