Hundreds Of Spotify Accounts Exposed Online

I do not think Spotify takes its security as seriously as it shouldآ—this is not the first time user info was leaked, and they have also failed to uphold their policy of notifying users of compromised credentials.

The user info appeared in three different online data dumps on Pastebin starting on Monday. Each dump contained email addresses with their corresponding passwords for Spotify. For some accounts, home countries, account types (such as premium or free), and account renewal dates were also published. Forbes has confirmed with more than 80 individual users that the leaked account info was correct. Fifteen different users also confirmed that the leaked passwords were unique to Spotify.
