Dailymotion on Friday announced that some accounts were the target of a credential stuffing attack. The video platform’s security team discovered the unauthorized access attempts and stopped them.
In an email notification to potentially impacted users, the French company says that the incident occurred on January 19. Six days later, the attack was still in progress.
Following the discovery of the account takeover attempts, Dailymotion started to log users out and initiated the password reset procedure. The email to users includes a link that allows them to regain access to their account.
