Bad news y’alls! Bad news!
Netflix subscribers once again flooded Twitter with tweets claiming their Netflix accounts have been or potentially hacked by other immoral users. And what shook the most is that this time around, the hackers come from Malaysia! WHAT?!
This issue has been roaming around since last year, but it was this year that Netflix has finally became the mainstream streaming platform for Malaysian viewers. Hence, this explains why Malaysians are starting to freak out because of this mix-up. Some Twitter users went to Twitter to unleash their frustrations and anger while some even mock the hacker for having the skills to hack people but unable to find a proper job to use that skill.

Someone in Malaysia just hacked my Netflix account. It’s not even 6am in Malaysia, but some dude is up saving $11 this month by hacking me.
Malaysia Guy: if you can hack my Netflix, you can probably find a job in the IT industry making some serious cash. Dream bigger bro.

One Twitter user expressed disappointment in his tweet that reads “what a disgrace to Malaysia, hacking overseas accounts just to start a business selling “shared” Netflix accounts”
