Popular Internet radio platform Last.fm may be the latest company facing a major security breach.
Last.fm posted a note on its blog on Thursday that it is currently investigating the leak of some of its user passwords.
The news comes on the heels of a news that a Russian hacker reportedly stole nearly 6.5 million LinkedIn passwords and 1.5 million passwords from popular dating site eHarmony. It’s unknown at this time if the same hacker is behind the Last.fm suspected leak.
“As a precautionary measure, we’re asking all our users to change their passwords immediately,” Last.fm said on its blog.
The music service is also urging members to update their passwords to other accounts that use the same password. [mashable]
