Hacked Disney+ Accounts on Sale for $1

Hacked Disney+ Accounts on Sale for $1

These hacking forums are giving away these illegally-accessed accounts for prices ranging from $0 to $11, according to ZDNet.

With the help of a cyber-security researcher, the BBC also found several hacked customer accounts for sale on the dark web.

According to The Daily Dot, the hugely popular Disney+ service, which amassed over 10 million subscribers on its first day alone, was targeted by threat actors from the get-go.

"The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations", a Disney spokesperson said November 12.

According to ZDNet, numerous accounts listed the type of subscription the user had, their account's location and when it expired.

Marching business up to the top of the hill, only to march them down again", he will say, according to advance extracts. Corbyn also said he would not form a coalition government if his party fails to secure a majority in parliament.

Emrielle Shenher told Global News that she woke up to an email Sunday indicating that her Disney+ password had been changed. The trouble is, Passwords are the worst option for secure authentication, but we don't yet have anything better.

"Unlike Netflix, I don't think Disney+ logs off the devices once the password has been changed", Shenher told Global News in an email. So, as soon as you can, cancel your existing account, and start over with a new email and password.

Customers say they saw their emails and passwords changed. ZDNet suggests that hackers gained access by finding account info (email and password combos) that were leaked on other sites. If you're seeing error code 86, then you'll want to contact customer service immediately as your account will have been blocked, potentially due to suspicious activity.

In an interview with BBC News, CyberInt lead researcher Jason Hill said that numerous accounts were stolen because users probably used the same passwords across different sites. Each time a person uses the same password they've used in the past with the same email or login username, they make it more likely that all of said accounts will be compromised. These hacking issues join a list of problems for Disney+, after users encountered early technical glitches and crashes during its first week.
