New Scam Alert: MFA Fatigue attacks are putting your organization at risk

Bleeping Computer reported: 

MFA refers to multi-factor authentication, a layered end-user verification strategy to secure data and applications. For a user to log in, an MFA system needs them to submit various combinations of two or more credentials.
