Although the Disney+ streaming service was launched in limited countries, there are already more than 10 million customers within the first 24 hours. Moreover, the Disney+ launch faced many technical issues as users complained that they were unable to stream their favorite movies and shows, right after the launch.

Among the flood of complaints, users also reported they were unable to access their Disney+ account. It was reported that hackers had signed into Disney+ accounts, logged out of all their devices, and then changed the account's email and password. This effectively left users out of the streaming service.

A report from ZDNet says that some users reused their passwords and some had created new passwords for the Disney+ service. This could mean that hackers gained access by using email and password combination leaked from other sites.

However, it doesn't change the fact that hackers were able to gain the credentials to access Disney+ accounts. Reports say it could be hacked using malware to steal the information or via keylogging the device. More shockingly, the accounts have been selling on the dark web within hours of the streaming service launch.


The ZDNet report says that various hacking forums "have been flooded with Disney+ accounts, with ads offering access to thousands of account credentials." Coming to the price, hackers are selling the account credentials from $3 and as high as $11, which is roughly Rs. 215 to Rs. 790. The actual Disney+ account costs $7 (approximately Rs. 500) per month.

Disney+, along with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and other streaming services are facing hacking incidents. Various hacking sites are flooded with account credentials of Prime, Netflix, and others for a price. It is advised that users set unique passwords for all their streaming services. So far, Disney has not commented on the new security flaw.
