As the BBC points out, user accounts on the new streaming service have become compromised as early as its launch day — and are now for sale on the dark web for as little as $3 USD, ZDNet reports.
According to the report, hackers are gaining Disney+ account credentials most commonly through other leaked websites (essentially from subscribers reusing old passwords), as well as keylogging and info-stealing malware.
So far, Disney has yet to speak on the matter.
As you might expect, Twitter is already aflame with angry customers. See some of their reactions below.
DISNEY+ HAS BEEN OPEN FOR LIKE 10 HOURS AND MY ACCOUNT HAS ALREADY BEEN HACKED pic.twitter.com/YBv6CfwTlh— brandon ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ (@brandoncult) November 12, 2019
2 days in and my @disneyplus account was already hacked and stolen! And the hack is so stupid simple to perform. SMH. Do yourself a favor and wait until @Disney devs can get their shit together before signing up! (Strong passwords wont help!)— Jack Steen (@jakcst) November 16, 2019
@disneyplus HUGE security issue- all Disney accounts are linked together so they have the same password. This means a hack on one is a hack on all. Spending the morning on the phone with Disney Vacation Club. Got access back to DVC and https://t.co/v9x89JdYtW but not Disney+ :(— Alicia (@juliothegato) November 17, 2019

#distwitter has anyone's @disneyplus account been hacked? My friend's was; hackers changed email and password. Now she's completely blocked from her 3-year prepaid Disney+ account. She's been on hold for >2 hours— cat+dog=happyhome (@Travel4vr) November 12, 2019
The security breach is the latest setback for Disney+, which was hit with a pile of technical problems upon its launch earlier this month.
