Brute Force Attacks

Defend Against Brute Force Attacks

Brute Force Attacks involve attackers trying every possible password combination until they find the correct one. This method can be time-consuming but is often effective against weak passwords.

How Brute Force Attacks Work:

  1. Simple Brute Force: Trying all possible combinations of passwords.
  2. Dictionary Attacks: Using a list of common words and phrases to guess passwords.
  3. Hybrid Attacks: Combining dictionary attacks with variations (e.g., adding numbers or symbols).

Protection Tips:

  • Use strong, unique passwords that are difficult to guess.
  • Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) to add an extra layer of security.
  • Monitor and limit the number of login attempts to prevent repeated access tries.

By strengthening your passwords and using MFA, you can effectively defend against brute force attacks.
