British telco Sky has locked Sky.com iD accounts as a safety measure following a credentials stuffing attack detected last month.
The measure was taken as a precaution, the company told ZDNet via email.
Hackers accessed some Sky.com email accounts following last month’s credentials stuffing attack, but those users had their accounts locked and were notified at the time.
The Sky.com accounts that have been locked yesterday have not been breached, the company told us.
Instead, Sky said they were locking accounts and prompting users to reset their passwords “as [a] good password management practice.”
