spotify-emailIf you use Spotify, the first thing you have to do as you possible you are to enter your account. If you can enter, change the password. According to several reports, Spotify has been attacked exploiting a security flaw. The result: an anonymous user published data users (such as user names, passwords and all kinds of information to be provided with the service) in Pastebin. And what is worse, some users can no longer access your account, something “logical” if we consider that the credentials have been made public.

Such hack can happen at any time and on any platform. The worst comes when we provide real data and these data are filtered on the network, something that has happened in this attack music service market leader Streaming. Spotify said “there have been hacked”, so the question is forced: Who has published the data on the network?
Some rumors say that the published information was obtained in a previous attack and not now, but TechCrunch has had access to some users whose comments appear to contradict the statements made by Spotify. Some of these users say they had no problems in the past as if they are having after learning this news.

Who is the hacker? It is not yet known, but Spotify users should not be concerned about how or when. What you have to do is change the password as soon as they possibly can, and if among the data that had provided them with is your bank account. Of course, as Apple-themed blog in which we are, we must say that this attack benefits other streaming music services like Apple Music. If users have the feeling that Spotify is not sure they would be forced to look for alternatives, something not look too likely. In any case, whether or not Spotify has been hacked, change your password now.
