How long does it take to get owned?
This article is based on the thesis - How long does it take to get owned? - a study to investigate
the amount of time that it takes for stolen credentials to be used by a hacker. It describes the
design of fake online identities (“honey identities”), an infrastructure for monitoring their activity
and an experiment to test the developed prototypes in which we discovered that it can take as
little as 34 minutes for a leaked password to be used.
