Hide Your Accounts Y’all They Hackin’ Everybody!

There’s a ton of chaos on the news, and so last week it was amazing to have the release of Disney+ . . . a nice, wholesome reprieve from all the depravity in the world.

Well, apparently that was just a very short-lived fantasy.  Now, even Disney+ has been corrupted.

Hackers started breaking into users’ accounts WITHIN HOURS of the Disney+ launch last Tuesday.  They logged in . . . removed all the original user’s devices . . . and changed their password and username.

That gave them complete control over the account, which they then placed up for sale on the dark web.  Some were priced as low as $3, while others went for $11.

Disney+ costs $6.99 a month, so why were shady people willing to buy these accounts?   That’s not 100% clear . . . but we’re assuming most of them were pre-paid for at least a year, or maybe the buyers are from countries that don’t currently have access to Disney+.

It’s unclear how many people were affected, but it’s AT LEAST in the hundreds, probably thousands.  The hackers reportedly got in because the users had the same email / password combo they’d used on other sites.  Disney hasn’t commented.
