Big increase in “phishing threats” since software update 7/16/22

Hello, just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Our system updated I believe July 15th or 16th and ever since then the “phishing threats” have skyrocketed.

Prior to that it was literally anywhere from 5-10 a week maybe, spread across 11 devices so very low. Now 400- 700 a week.  Because I work from home and bc some of the devices are minimal, very specific use, I’ve been able to determine 90% of the “threats” are triggered by Disney Plus or Peacock.  For example, my son’s ipad is ONLY used for disney plus and prior to the July update never had a single threat and now I can track it to the time stamp of when he has Disney Plus going to when his iPad is having “phishing threats.”   
My ipad never had a security threat prior to that update (I only stream on it using major streaming services, nothing suspect, no social media, web surfing etc) and same as my son’s ipad, when I have Peacock or Disney going, I start accumulating threats each hour the app is open which i can track via time stamp. Additionally my firesticks never had any “threats” and after the July update they each have anywhere from 2-6 phishing “threats” a day, more if we open Disney or Peacock.  What is the deal?!
