According to reports, thousands of accounts from the recently launched Disney+ have been hacked and been put up for sale on hacking forums. These hacking forums are giving away these illegally-accessed accounts for prices ranging from $0 to $11, according to ZDNet.
It should be noted that this practice is common for most streaming services and is not necessarily an indictment on Disney+’s security measures. Users are encouraged to use difficult and unique passwords to make hacking harder for those wishing to gain unauthorized access to your account.
This isn’t the first obstacle for Disney+ in its short life, as launch day saw numerous glitches due to the more than 10 million people that signed up in the first 24 hours. For the most part, the technical issues associated with videos being unplayable or searches failing to return applicable results have been resolved.
Stay tuned to WDWNT as we monitor this situation and provide any updates as they become available.
