The Southern District of New York has charged a man with six counts related to an alleged hacking of DraftKings player accounts, in which 60,000 accounts were compromised.
The complaint alleges that Joseph Garrison unlawfully accessed DraftKings accounts in November 2022 by launching a “credential stuffing attack”, which inputs stolen credentials – such as usernames and passwords – into login pages for other services.
The indictment states that Garrison gained access to an estimated 60,000 DraftKings player accounts by doing this.
