Thread: Netflix account hacked

  1. #11
    that password has been ditched now anyhow

  2. #12
    Happened me about a year ago. Phoned Netflix and they confirmed I had been hacked and upgraded to their full package. I used to use one of about 6 different passwords but changed all my passwords on nearly every other site I use to individual phrases. It took a while.
    When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command.

    Very often that individual is crazy.

    Back in June, I got an email notification of a new sign-in to my Netflix account, from Pichincha, Ecuador. I'm already on the 4k, max screens package but changed the password anyway. A month later, and over the following week or so I about 10 emails along the lines of the one below. Now I haven't been on here much lately but I've checked all the sections and I feel a bit swindled as I can't find all these vids starring me. Or maybe they had second thoughts, and were concerned about copyright infringement or something.


    Hello, I know your password is: (what the password was)

    Your computer was infected with my RAT (Remote Administration Tool), your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more - Google: "Drive-by exploit".

    My malware gave me full access to all your accounts (see password above), full control over your computer and it also was possible to spy on you over your webcam.

    I collected all your private data and I RECORDED YOU (through your webcam) SATISFYING YOURSELF!

    After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces and this email was sent from some hacked server.

    I can publish the video of you and all your private data on the whole web, social networks, over email of all contacts and send it to your friends.

    But you can stop me and only I can help you out in this situation.

    Transfer exactly 800$ in bitcoin (BTC).

    It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible that will happen if I publish everything!

    You can easily buy bitcoin here: www.paxful.com , www.coingate.com , www.coinbase.com , or check for bitcoin ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger.
    You can send the bitcoin directly to my wallet, or create your own wallet first here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/ , then receive and send to mine.

    My bitcoin wallet is: 1CSDpCjyVHsuTb6i7zZ8dr81iUGL5ff7vM

    Copy and paste my wallet, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE)

    You got 2 days time to pay.

    As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read.
    If you get this email multiple times, it's to make sure that you read it, my mailer script is configured like this and after payment you can ignore it.
    After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before.

    Next time update your browser before browsing the web!

    I get those from time to time and my wife has told me not to pay. She wants to see what I've been up to. Still haven't received my video satisfying myself. Now I just modify an Eircom "Failure to deliver" Email and send it back.

    Subsequent to this, my Spotify account also got taken over. No damage other than all my favourites deleted and replaced by the kind of god-awful sihte that 16 year old girls listen to, and an unknown android phone added as a download device. I set both accounts to a pretty strong password that I use elsewhere.

    Over the weekend I noticed some more crap popping up in my Spotify favourites.

    And this afternoon I was texted activation codes by Uber and Dropbox.

    I'm starting to think there's been a username/password breach somewhere ?

    Actually it may be totally unrelated. Could be a flurry of bot activity having a go at phone apps.

    Go into your Spotify account and log out all other devices except the one you’re on. It’s possible that even though you changed your password, Spotify does not automatically terminate active sessions on all devices, ie forcing all devices to log out and need the new password.

    Get a password manager like LastPass or 1password and start using a different password for all accounts. I’ve mine set up on my iPhone so that any time I go to log in, it automatically detects the site, authenticates with Face ID, and retrieves and populates the correct password. Other than my master password for the password manager, I don’t know what any of my passwords are. Can’t get much more secure than that for most people’s risk requirements.

    If you’re tech adverse, make unique passwords and then write them down in a notebook. It’s better than using the same ones everywhere.

    Well I did the above when reclaiming my Spotify account last time. The new dodgy faves could be no more than someone else hitting like when I wasn’t around.

    I’ll look into a password manager, could be a bit exposed if accounts like Amazon got stolen.

    Good tip though, thanks.

    On the topic of Spotify, I realised a few weeks back my ex was using my Spotify. Feicin' shíte popping up in my recently listened to and Síle Seoige podcasts.

    Changed the password, but I never bloody logged out of all devices, so she was still using it. Up until last week.

    I had my Netflix done yesterday, login in from Tunisia - reset password, logged in and arabic subtitles had been enabled... creepy!

    My EA account was also done yesterday, I assume that is where the leak came from.
