Spotify says it has ‘not experienced a security breach’ and that user records are safe.
On 22 May, a little-known hacking collective using the name “Leak Boat” released what they purported to be over six thousand usernames and passwords from Spotify, one of the world’s most popular music streaming services. The Swedish firm has denied being breached.
The Leak Boat hacking group, which is using a Twitter account with the handle @SecTeamSix, initially claimed the trove of credentials amounted to 9,000 records. However, upon inspection it included 6,410 entries. All appeared to be linked to Spotify’s free subscription option.
