How denial of inventory & scalping attacks work

Helping to prevent scalpers and spinners from stealing your profits and customers’ trust

Scalping, spinning, stockouts.
A sophisticated storm of abuse.

In denial of inventory attacks, fraudsters use sophisticated bots to add an item thousands of times to online shopping carts until the item’s inventory is exhausted, creating a stockout. Competitors can then steal your customers by providing them with the products you can no longer sell.

With scalping or spinning attacks, cybercriminals utilize automated bots to buy highly-prized products, such as limited-edition sneakers and clothes, concert tickets, or in-demand toys and game consoles. Sophisticated bots set up fake accounts that scour product pages, then buy your best products to sell them at inflated prices on third-party sites or the black market.

HUMAN Bot Defender helps prevent denial of inventory and scalping attacks

HUMAN’s modern defense strategy stops fraudsters from automating inventory and scalping abuse with the scale, speed, and precision that enables you to allow real users friction-free access

Today’s sophisticated bots behave like real users and are designed to evade detection. As a result, businesses find it increasingly challenging to defend applications from automated attacks. Even when apps function as intended, they are vulnerable to fraudsters using bots that mimic human behavior using mouse movements, keystrokes, and fake browser behavior. These sophisticated bots can easily evade bot detection features in conventional application security solutions that rely on behavioral monitoring or static lists, leaving your apps vulnerable to abuse. Unlike traditional solutions, HUMAN Bot Defender combines superior detection techniques, internet-scale observability, and hacker intelligence to make bot or not decisions with no impact on page load times or friction on end-users. With this scale and speed, we can mitigate today and tomorrow’s sophisticated bots.
