Internet Radio Site Reports Security Breach

Company says it’s investigating leak of some customer passwords

Internet radio music site is investigating a leak of some of its customer security passwords.

In a statement on the website, the CBS-owned company asks all users to change their passwords as a precaution. Instructions are on the site.

“We will never email you a direct link to update your settings or ask for a password,” states a spokesperson on the site, which did not specify how widespread the leak is or how many users may be affected.

The company says it has some 37 million active users.

The Internet radio music site says it will post updates on the password issue in its forums and via its Twitter account (@lastfm) as well.

EHarmony and LinkedIn also reported some 8 million passwords have been compromised between them this week. It’s unclear if the breaches are related.
