DataVisor’s Unsupervised Machine Learning Engine is uniquely capable of detecting these mass-registered accounts by uncovering the hidden connections between accounts, even if those accounts have not yet done any damage or started their attack.
How Attackers Mass Register Accounts
Fake User Activity
Attackers simulate user activity by uploading stolen photos and content from other sites, making them appear real even to human reviewers.
Attackers use readily-available stolen credentials or information from data breaches to create authentic-looking new accounts.
Proxies, VPNs, and cloud-hosting services allow attackers to evade IP or location blacklists and digital-fingerprint solutions.
How Unsupervised Machine Learning Stops Mass Registration
There are many challenges when it comes to mass registration detection. For one, the amount of data is limited at registration. Further, falsely rejecting a real customer at account opening can prevent a legitimate person from signing up with the service. DataVisor’s Unsupervised Machine Learning Engine looks at a new registration in the context of millions of recent registrations, deriving and analyzing a rich array of features, in order to determine if there are any suspicious similarities between the newly registered accounts. This allows the UML Engine to adapt in real-time as fraudsters change their attack techniques, keeping your online service free of fake accounts and the downstream havoc they attempt to conduct.

What’s Happening with Mass Registration
Fake accounts are a bigger problem than ever. With so many new security technologies, why are they still so prevalent? Recent studies show that approximately 10 percent of accounts on social media sites are fake.
