It seems LinkedIn is not the only victim of password theft, and now adds to this the LastFM music service, which through a message on his Twitter account reported that are investigating a incident, recommending users change their password as soon as possible.

Also, the tweet contains a link that leads us to a statement published in more elaborate than the site of this service, which informs users that Last.fm detected within leaked on the net and already affected recently to other sites like eHarmony and LinkedIn, so ask your users change their passwords, regardless of whether or not these are among the stolen passwords.

It is advisable to use a different password for each service in which we are registered to make isolate it in case we steal your password, and avoid a wave of impersonations.

The serious and disturbing of these leaks is their origin, since they already are affected three sites despite having nothing in common, were victims of a mass theft of passwords of its users. Moreover, none of these services has proved so far that is what might have failed in its security system.

Reported that Last.fm will continue to publish more information via your account on Twitter, so if you want to know more about this new computer attack, we must review a couple of times a day your tweets.

And remember, never hurts to change the passwords of our services from time to time, plus this is unique to each site where we are registered.
