Disney+ warns viewers that old movies may have 'outdated cultural depictions'

Viewers who signed up to stream Disney+ were greeted with disclaimers about racist and offensive content in some older movies.

(Meredith) - Less than a week after Disney launched its new streaming service, hackers are reportedly locking subscribers out of their accounts.

Tech news site ZDNet reported that hackers accessed thousands of Disney+ accounts and then changed the emails and passwords to lock out the previous owners.

A ZDNet investigation also discovered that many accounts were listed for $3 to $11 on various hacking forums on the dark web. For reference, Disney+ costs as low as $6.99 a month.

Some users voiced their concerns on Twitter, while others called on Disney to boost security measures. 

"Not even been half of a week and my dad’s Disney+ account has ALREADY been hacked," one person tweeted. "Great security there ... Unbelievable." 

According to Forbes, there are no reports confirming the root cause of the alleged hacking.

Disney has not responded to the report.
