A very unfortunate issue among big name online companies has emerged over the past few days: Leaked passwords. LinkedIn was first, eHarmony second and now reports are suggesting Last.fm has joined the infamous club.
The music website issued a statement on Thursday to confirm that it is “currently investigating the leak of some Last.fm user passwords.” As a precaution, the company recommends users change their password immediately, and ensure it’s unique (duh). That means you should try and be more creative than “ilovemusic.”
While Last.fm’s statement doesn’t confirm a leak occurred, it wouldn’t hurt to change your password like the service recommends; you can never be too careful.
