Netflix warns customers to change their passwords

LOS GATOS, Calif. (KGO) -- Netflix is issuing a warning to customers this week after several other websites were hacked - change your password.

While the streaming service wasn't hacked, it says since many people use the same usernames and passwords for multiple accounts, they're recommending the change.
