Pluto TV is an American internet television service, it is an advertiser-supported video on demand (AVOD) service that primarily offers a selection of programming content through digital linear channels designed to emulate the experience of traditional broadcast programming.
The service has over 28 million members.
The data breach appears to be the work of a well-known threat actor named ShinyHunters, who is behind many other security breaches, including the hacks of Microsoft’s private GitHub repository, the popular digital banking app Dave.com, and Animal Jam.
This week, a threat actor shared a database containing 3.2 million Pluto TV user records, he also added that the service was hacked by ShinyHunters.
The dump includes PLUTO TV’s display name, email address, bcrypt hashed password, birthday, device platform, and IP address.
Bleeping Computer, which has validated the authenticity of the archive, reported that the latest record in the database was created on October 12th, 2018.
Pluto TV users are urged to immediately change their passwords, in case they share the same password at other sites, it is recommended that they change them too.
