According to a ZDNet investigation, hackers commandeered user accounts for Disney Plus’ new streaming service. As a result, hackers locked users out, changed authorization log-ins, and sold the hacked accounts for as little as $3 each.

Questions:

  1. Does this happen with other streaming services? If so, what are some of the other services mentioned?
  2. What does the article say that Disney Plus failed to incorporate in its security?
  3. Will the incorporation of this security option in question #2 guarantee that hacking will not occur?
  4. In what countries has Disney Plus launched?
