Detecting Brute Force Attacks

Rate this post

Brute force attacks are commonly used to gain unauthorized access by trying multiple password combinations. These attacks can target various protocols and services such as web applications, RDP, SSH, mail servers, LDAP, and databases. Tools like Aircrack-ng, John the Ripper, L0phtCrack, and Hashcat are often employed in these attacks to crack passwords. To prevent brute force attacks, administrators can implement measures like lock policies, progressive delays, CAPTCHA, and strong password policies. Detection of brute force attacks can be done by analyzing logs, such as Event ID 4624, to identify successful or unsuccessful login attempts.
