A Netflix Data Breach?

This might be something to add to the tsunami of bad to not-that-good news rolling over the dominant streaming service.

This morning I was notified by email that Netflix had authorized someone else to change the email address and phone number allowing them to change MY account to their log-in.

I had paused Netflix a month ago, and all of a sudden, I have multiple charges from them on my credit card, obviously due to some MAJOR hole in Netflix’s account security.

Anybody else running into this? This sort of data breach usually is spread far and wide, and while it’s not absolutely certain that this was on Netflix’s end, that seems to be where the fishing is going on. A

And it’s been going on for years.
