Why are streaming services more at risk?
Hackers usually launch credential stuffing attacks in order to use the siphoned information such as login credentials on other sites in an assumption that users of online streaming services utilize the same usernames and passwords for multiple services. Therefore, companies in the media and entertainment streaming sector along with those operating in the online gaming sector are the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks.
Credential stuffing attacks happen because streaming services user credentials are hot commodity on the dark web.
User credentials are in high demand
Hacking forums are systematically overflowing with hacked Amazon Prime, Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix accounts, among other streaming platforms. As you now know, the reason hackers continue to put up new accounts for sale on a regular basis is because there is a high demand.
The speed at which hackers can mobilize to monetize user credentials stolen from streaming services is astounding. Prices vary from $3 per account to as much as $11, which can be higher than the monthly subscription to most streaming platforms.
