Hackers are now not only selling credit card data, but are also offering subscriptions to online video services such as Netflix, HBO Go and HBO Now, according to research by McAfee Labs and Intel Security.
Many online streaming entertainment media services are commonly sold. Both HBO Now and HBO Go accounts can be found for less than $10 as well as other cable TV-branded streaming services, McAfee notes. “Clearly, video streaming services are in high demand. Even premium professional sports streaming services can be purchased for $15. We also found other online accounts being sold, including lifetime subscriptions to premium pornography accounts, as well as free referral links to the dark web market Agora.”
Tim Stenovec of Tech Insider found that he could easily buy lifetime subscriptions to Spotify and Netflix for a fraction of the price of a monthly subscription, such as $0.50 for a lifetime subscription to Netflix (see picture).
“We found pretty much everything possible available for sale,” Raj Samani, the vice president and CTO at Intel Security and author of the report mentioned above, told Tech Insider.
