Subject description: watching streaming content without the knowledge of the account owner
 

https://darkwebnews.com/dark-web/streaming-logins-available-on-darknet/

A recent report by Netherlands-based cybersecurity firm Irdeto reveals that the login credentials of multiple online streaming services can be found on the dark web for just less than $9.

The digital platforms whose logins are up for sale in the hidden marketplaces include Netflix, Hulu, HBO and DirectTV, among others.

By creating phishing sites, it was easy to trick subscribers of OTT sites that they are actually on the correct page, after which they would enter their usernames and passwords only to be stolen by the hacker.

The other mode used is setting up ads promising cheaper access to Netflix.

This would hoodwink the individual into download the app and upon launching it, the program would then create a decoy of the actual Netflix website, tricking the customer into entering their login details.

These among other tactics are widespread among attackers who are targeting various online companies.


For those who are fond of subscribing to OTT services, it is recommended that they regularly change their password especially if they see any suspicious activities going on in their account.

For example, when using Netflix, there might be an additional number of user profiles or even movies appearing that you have never watched before.
