Hackers are turning their attention to streaming services in an ongoing bid to capitalize on the current COVID-19 pandemic and increase their own profits, according to Mimecast. The email security vendor revealed that it had detected the registration of over 700 suspicious domains designed to impersonate the Netflix brand in under a week. The recently launched Disney+ service is also coming under increasing scrutiny from black hats, it claimed. The reason is simple: COVID-19-related government lockdowns have forced the population of many countries to stay indoors, with some companies furloughing or letting go workers. With parents, children and students all obliged to stay at home, streaming services have understandably soared in popularity.
