Your streaming service is fertile ground for bot attacks
Today, it seems like every few weeks, a new content provider launches an exclusive way to access entertainment. In the last year alone, we saw the introduction of Disney+, Peacock, HBO Max, and others. This is good news for consumers who want exclusive access to content, good news for broadcasters who can charge a premium for access, and especially good news for hackers. Yep, hackers. Streaming services are an enticing target for cybercriminals who use malicious bots to grab your customer’s account information and then sell or even use it themselves to access other services.
