AdGuard, an ad-blocking service, resets all user passwords following credential stuffing attack

AdGuard reported “continuous attempts to log in to AdGuard accounts from suspicious IP addresses which belong to various servers across the globe.”

  • AdGuard said that the attacks were unsuccessful because of limits to the number of times someone can try to login to an accounting using different passwords.
  • “As a precautionary measure, we have reset passwords to all AdGuard accounts,” said AdGuard co-founder and CTO Andrey Meshkov.
  • AdGuard plans to add two-factor authentication and has implemented stricter password requirements. The company has over 5 million users.
