Beware of Password Spraying

Password Spraying is a technique used by attackers in an attempt to gain access to the victim's account by trying passwords that users are most likely to use. Attackers in a single attempt can try to access multiple accounts by running them against a few commonly used passwords (eg: password, 12345, etc). Unlike brute-forcing, this approach has proven to be very successful as it enables attackers to stay hidden and avoid rapid account lockouts.
