Disney+ was released on November 12, and has already gained more than 10 million customers despite the service only being available in the US, Canada, and the Netherlands. Just hours after the launch, hackers began offering accounts on hacking forums with prices varying from $3 to $11.

The prices range from $3 to $11, and a legitimate Disney+ account costs $7.
