Disney+ accounts are being hacked and sold on the dark web for $3-$7

Protect your Disney+ account from being hacked by changing your password to something extremely unique

Disney launched its new streaming service last week, and within just a couple of days, the new platform reached 10 million accounts. Now some of those accounts are being sold illegally.

According to many members of Disney+, a slew of different user accounts are appearing to have their account details changed without the user being aware. Some of these account details for users are appearing to be sold on the dark web for money. The users who have reported their accounts being hijacked haven't specified if they are using an old recycled password, nor how access was granted to their accounts in the first place.

Could this be a bug in the Disney+ system that we are unaware of? And why hasn't Disney or any other the other streaming services adopted an authenticator as a means of security? Techspot reports that the hijacked accounts are being sold on dark web services for anywhere between $3 and $7 per account. It would be advised to Disney+ users to change their account password to something unique and strong.
