Spotify says its computers were hacked
FORTUNE — Spotify, the music streaming service, disclosed on Tuesday hackers gained access the its computer system, making just the latest in a long string of companies to suffer a security breach.
The hackers got access to only one user’s account information, Spotify said on its blog. The company gave few other details about the incident except that the hacking “did not include any password, financial or payment information.”
“Based on our findings, we are not aware of any increased risk to users as a result of this incident,” the post continued.
Regardless, Spotify said it will take precautions to ensure users’ privacy is safeguarded. Some users will be automatically logged out and then asked to log in again. Those with an outdated version of the Spotify app for Android phones will also receive help to install the most recent version. There were no recommended actions for iOS and Windows Phone users.
Oskar Stal, Spotify’s CTO, wrote in the post, “We have taken steps to strengthen our security systems in general and help protect you and your data – and we will continue to do so. We will be taking further actions in the coming days to increase security for our users.”
Additional information from Spotify was not immediately available.
