from Automated Threats(BOTS)
What are these BOTS and what they do?
Create multiple fake accounts on multiple portals.
They are also capable of carrying out fraudulent financial transactions by impersonating real user credentials.
Bots are used by hackers to target your platform’s vulnerabilities, to brute force your login pages or to impersonate human users also numerous forms are fraudulently filled by these bots.
Traditional methods such as CAPTCHA have been rendered useless with advanced machine learning and image processing tools available to the hacker.
Multiple crawler programs/BOTS are capable of reading,copying and sharing critical information such as price, stock of certain inventory. Then the competitor can adjust his own price accordingly in order to lure users to his portal or plan what kind of attack to be carried out. They also attempt to gain knowledge of financial information such as account numbers, credit card numbers etc.
Application denial of service
BOTS make multiple requests to the portal and open multiple sessions which causes infrastructure strain to the portal leading to downtime. Such attacks are commonly carried out by competitors in order to hamper the business of their rival and gain advantage of having more users.
Digital ad fraud
BOTS click on advertising URLs and simulate traffic leading advertising agencies and their clients to believe that the portal/site has gained popularity. Such fraudulent actions are termed as click frauds. This leads to businesses taking decisions based on inaccurate and mis-guiding information and data.
One of the best way to hamper your competitor's reputaion and boosting your own is by posting reviews and comments in high volume on multiple blogs. This is exactly what the BOTS are capable of and are carrying out such attacks on various social media platforms and on public forums.
BOTS tend to block and hoard inventory such as tickets, merchandise etc by choosing it and taking blocking it either via COD(cash on delivery) option or by keeping payment pending on multiple sessions. This Leads to users seeing that the inventory they wanted is unavailable and can also trigger false stock alerts and actions such as automatically placing an order for the out of stock inventory.
