SourceCVE-2023-50707

The [Company Name] service has been found vulnerable to active session attacks with a CVSS score of 9.6. Active session attacks work by exploiting user sessions that are currently logged into an account or service.

An attacker would be able to send custom requests to the [Company Name] servers by hijacking an active user session through technical means. This could allow them to cause a denial of service on the user’s account by flooding it with requests. While the account itself may not be compromised, it would become temporarily unusable.

Services that rely on keeping users logged in for seamless access are most at risk from these kinds of attacks. To stay protected, users should log out of their [Company Name] account in all browsers and devices when not in use. Enabling multi-factor authentication can also make hijacking active sessions much harder for attackers.

Stay vigilant of any unusual account activity and ensure your passwords are strong and unique. Contact [Company Name] support right away if you notice any suspicious behavior with your account. Taking basic security precautions can help prevent active session exploits and keep your [Company Name] experience worry-free.
