Change your last.fm password

Following in the steps of Linkedin and eHarmony this week who both had major security issues, Last.fm is the latest to have issues and is recommending you change your password. Of all the sites that have been hacked Last.fm is the only one who actually warned users and didn't deny the rumors until it was glaringly obvious that they'd been hacked. The Verge has the details.

Following in the ignominious footsteps of LinkedIn and eHarmony, Last.fm is today disclosing that it too has suffered a security breach that has led to "the leak of some Last.fm user passwords." The note from the company doesn't go into any more depth than that, with a related tweet adding that a security issue is being investigated and advising that, as a precaution, all users should log in and change their passwords.
