What May Be Happening?
“Credential stuffing” is a type of cyberattack that uses stolen account credentials, typically lists of usernames and/or email addresses and the corresponding passwords, to attempt to gain unauthorized access to user accounts through large-scale automated login requests directed against a web application.
We take security seriously and there is no indication that there has been a security event at Community Bank. Stolen credentials could come from any websites involved in a previous breach where you utilize usernames and passwords, including shopping, email, ecommerce, gaming, etc. Scammers are rarely successful in getting into your account. However, the hackers will use automated tools to attempt logging into multiple platforms to gain access. Your account is at increased risk when you reuse the same username and password across multiple sites.
For your protection, CBNA will lock your account after three unsuccessful attempts, causing your access to be locked out temporarily.
What You Can Do to Protect Yourself?
Safeguarding your personal information and assets from security threat begins with creating secure login information. Consider these tips to protect yourself against possible identity theft or fraud:
- Update your Username with a unique ID, different from other accounts. We strongly recommend that you make the new Username longer than 8 characters, include numbers and a special character.
- Always use a unique password for each account you create. The risk with reusing passwords (and usernames) is that as soon as one site has a security issue, it’s very easy for hackers to try the same username and password combination on other websites.
- Don’t use any personally identifiable information in your passwords. Names, birthdays and street addresses may be easy to remember, but they’re also easily found online and should always be avoided in passwords to ensure the greatest strength.
- Make sure your passwords are at least 12 characters long and contain letters, numbers and special characters. Some people prefer to generate passwords that are 14 or 20 characters long.
- If you’re creating a password that you’ll need to remember, try using phrases or lyrics from your favorite movie or song. Just add random characters, but don't replace them in easy patterns.
- Avoid using similar passwords that change only a single word or character (such as going from “!LoveMYbank1” to “!LoveMYbank2”). This practice weakens your account security across multiple sites.
- Change your username and passwords when you have reason to, such as after a website has had a breach or if it’s been over a year since you last changed it.
- You should never share your passwords, especially not via email or text message.
- Use two-factor authentication tools that verify your identity via codes, fingerprints or facial recognition.
- Frequently monitor your accounts to quickly report signs of suspicious activity.
