Disney’s long-awaited streaming service, Disney+, launched last week to much fanfare, notching an impressive 10 million subscribers on its first day. However, within 24 hours of going live, it was reported that thousands of accounts have been hacked, with critical data stolen and sold onto the dark web.
Disney+ users began posting messages on Twitter and Reddit stating that their accounts had been compromised. Some users complained of being locked out of pre-paid accounts after receiving alerts that account information, including their password and contact details, had been changed.
