Check Point, an insurance vendor, states that an attacker can use the vulnerability detected during the "Fortress Fortress" login process to get a user account.

Players who click on seemingly transparent phishing links in the domain of epic games and attackers will be attacked. By clicking on the link, an attacker can easily capture the identity of his Hero on the fort, even without entering into any authority to log in. Check Point researchers say the potential vulnerabilities found in both Epic Games subdomains that are vulnerable to malicious redirects will result in the hacker being able to intercept the legitimate user authentication token through an attacked subdomain.
Odd Vanunu, Head of the Check Point vulnerability research, said: "Fortress Hero is one of the most popular games for online gamers. These disadvantages give hackers the ability to attack privacy. Vulnerability has been revealed in platforms used by DJI, showing that cloud applications are highly vulnerable to attack and destruction. These platforms have a large amount of sensitive customer data and are seeing more and more hackers. Implementation of two identification factors can help alleviate First. A vulnerability in which account was stolen. "
