Okta warns scammers are going after super admin privileges

Criminals have been targeting Okta’s clients in an attempt to gain access to accounts with administrator privileges.

“In recent weeks, multiple U.S.-based Okta customers have reported a consistent pattern of social engineering attacks against IT service desk personnel, in which the caller’s strategy was to convince service desk personnel to reset all multi-factor authentication (MFA) factors enrolled by highly privileged users,” the company confirmed in a blog post.
