RIPE NCC, a not-for-profit regional Internet Registry for Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Central Asia, has disclosed that they were the victim of a credential stuffing attack. The company is responsible for allocating blocks of IP addresses to Internet providers, hosting providers, and organizations in the EMEA region. Users of the service included over 20,000 organizations in over 75 different countries. Credential stuffing attacks are carried out by threat actors and attempt to use old passwords and email combinations that have been previously breached to login into other accounts. The attack affected the Single Sign On (SSO) service and caused a small amount of downtime while the company mitigated the attack.
