Netflix has reminded people whose user IDs are circulating in breach-lists to check their security and if necessary reset their passwords.

The issue resurfaced late last week, when an Adweek writer posted that he'd received a “reset your password” message:

“As part of our regular security monitoring, we discovered that credentials that match your Netflix email address and password were included in a release of email addresses and passwords from a breach at another company.”

Netflix has been hacked to bits. They need to introduce a second level of security.

Just a level would be nice.

Mine appeared on a liar a few months back. it's not the easiest password to know si I'm very dubious as to how they're getting them. Since I changed, I've not had any further issues. Really annoying.

I doubt it's actually a security risk more a ploy to get users to reset their passwords for the users that have shared their passwords with friends, partners, now exes etc.
If people have been using their friends account on the sly, they are not suddenly going to ask that friend they haven't spoken to in 6 months what their Netflix password is... Therefore new subscribers

There are a plethora of forums where people gain access to Netflix accounts via brute forcing and they either dump them into a text file for free or sell large amounts at a very very cheap price, so yes, you should be worried since someone could be using your Netflix account without you even knowing.

Netflix logins are everywhere for sale on certain sites from £5 definitely worth changing passwords regularly or if you see new programs being watch on your account.
