Users of the music streaming and scrobbling service last.fm should be prepared to change their password in the wake of this announcement, that seemingly, has gone under the radar:

"We strongly recommend that you change your password now, while we investigate a security problem. Find out more."

Last.fm Password Security Update


7th June 2012


We are currently investigating the leak of some Last.fm user passwords. This follows recent password leaks on other sites, as well as information posted online. As a precautionary measure, we’re asking all our users to change their passwords immediately.


Change your password


We strongly recommend that your new Last.fm password is different to the password you use on other services. For more advice on choosing a solid password we recommend: Passwords ? Good to Know ? Google


We’re sorry for the inconvenience around changing your password; Last.fm takes your privacy very seriously. We’ll be posting updates in our forums and via our Twitter account (@lastfm) as we get to the bottom of this.


The Last.fm Team
This, like many recent threats made against online services like LinkedIn, should be taken seriously. Many individuals may have linked up to the service using newer ones like Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes.
