Earlier today, we have published the news of Last.fm’s possible password leakage. Few days ago, social networking website LinkedIn became the first site to discover that more than 6.4 million of its passwords had been leaked into hashed format. eHarmony was the second site wherein some of its member’s passwords had also been leaked. Both the companies had locked down compromised user accounts and e-mailed their other members with instructions on how to reset the password for their account. The following day of LinkedIn’s incident, the music streaming service became the latest site to fall foul of security leaks.

London-based social music site Last.fm helps users sharing music recommendations. According to the last count, last.fm has over 37 million active users. To provide better services, the website uses Apache software for serving its web pages. The company has admitted ‘some’ of its millions of user passwords may have been leaked. But the company have not disclosed how many accounts are at risk.

 

At then, Last.fm in a message on its site said, “We are currently investigating the leak of some Last.fm user passwords. This follows recent password leaks on other sites, as well as information posted online. As a precautionary measure, we’re asking all our users to change their passwords immediately.”

At that time, the company also warned its users that it would never email them a direct link to update their settings or ask for their password. After that, the Last.fm team began to check its security system instantly. They made some changed in their security system without wasting time to secure the users’ data. Those users who change their password on Last.fm since the afternoon of June 7, their’s data are absolutely secured with a more rigorous method for user data storage. Still they are sending these alerts and the request of changing password via social media, direct email and posting on the Last.fm site.

To be noted that, Last.fm has redoubled their efforts to protect their our users’ data. So to keep your data safe, change your password as soon as possible.
