What Are Bot Attacks?
Bot attack is the use of automated web requests to manipulate, defraud, or disrupt a website, application, API, or end-users.
Almost all industries especially retail, gaming, and finance & fintech are constant targets of bad bot attacks such as denial of inventory, scalping, scraping, credential stuffing, and Layer 7 DDoS attacks. Furthermore, bots are becoming increasingly complex and intelligent, making identification and deterrent exceedingly difficult. Bot attacks can lead to poor website performance, valuable data breaches, and heavy economic loss.
What Bot Attacks Your Online Business Might Be Suffering?

- Carding and Credit Card Stuffing
Carding attacks focus on the checkout page using stolen user’s card information that will bring huge economic losses to the company.
- Web Scraping
For web scraping, bots are used to crawl web pages to steal prices, curated content, valuable data, product reviews, and inventory data with the aim of capturing and retargeting these data to another website. Web Scraping will definitely leak important business data, giving competitors a chance to copy and get for nothing. Serious situations will directly affect the survival and development of the enterprise.
With scalping, bots are utilized for quickly purchasing low-cost and high-demand products, such as shoes or concert tickets to make huge profits. Scalping will make the website’s supply and demand out of balance and give the attacker an opportunity to take profit illegally, also makes users who have their own needs lose their rights.
