Websites use a range of authentication mechanisms to verify user identity. If there are vulnerabilities in authentication mechanisms, an attacker may be able to gain access to another user's account. They may then be able to access sensitive data and additional attack surface. If an attacker gains access to a high-privileged account, this may compromise the entire application.
You can use a range of tools in Burp Suite to test for authentication vulnerabilities.
