Spotify suffers cyberattack, update looming for Android users

Spotify Google Android users will likely have to change their passwords and download an update following a report of a compromised user

Online music service Spotify is quickly preparing to launch an update for Google Android users, following confirmation of an internal company breach. Users will have to select new passwords and should expect to update their Android Spotify accounts - and Apple iPhone or Microsoft Windows devices likely won't need to be changed.

To date, Spotify only found one user's data has been accessed, with no password, financial or payment information breached.

 

Here is what Oskar Stal, Spotify CTO said in a blog post: "We've become aware of some unauthorized access to our systems and internal company data and we wanted to let you know the steps we're taking in response. As soon as we were aware of this issue we immediately launched an investigation. Information security and data protection are of great importance to us at Spotify and that is why I'm posting today.
