OTP/SMS Flood Attack

We have received multiple reports regarding the growing threat of OTP/SMS flood attacks targeting businesses in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Attackers are exploiting SMS interfaces to send a large volume of One-Time Passwords (OTPs) or SMS messages to overwhelm the host servers, potentially denying access to legitimate services.

An OTP (One-Time Password) flood attack is a type of Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack that targets the corporate website's contact form, which often includes a field for users to enter their phone number or email address.

SMS flood attacks can be disruptive and damaging for businesses, leading to loss of productivity, revenue, and reputation. It is important for businesses to have robust cybersecurity measures in place to prevent and mitigate the impact of such attacks.
