HTTP Brute Force Attempt

L0 Member

I was contacted by a major government entity about an HTTP Brute Force attack/attempt coming from my institution.  Their IDS triggered on a researcher in my organization attempting to login to one of their training websites.  The user forgot their password.  I only found out due to this user being only one in the PAN going to this website, however, what I'm wondering is why the PAN wouldn't have labeled it first?  Has anyone come across something like this before?

This is a bit older, but it may help.

"If a session has the same source and destination and triggers a single

login/authentication event 100 times in 60 seconds, we will identify

it as a brute force attack."
