Weekly Intelligence Summary 24th Sept

Since 15 Sep 2021, all Microsoft customers have been able to benefit from “passwordless” accounts, allowing them to transition from using traditional credential combinations to signing in solely via phone- or email-based applications. This change is highly likely to affect the cyber-threat landscape by mitigating many common credential-based attacks. But only time will tell how many people adopt the new feature, and how many remain committed to using the traditional username-password authentication system. Although Microsoft’s move represents a breakthrough in the way its users log in, threat actors will adapt their techniques to accommodate the elimination of password logins.
