It's not been a good week for internet services. First LinkedIn gets hacked, then eHarmony and now Last.fm. It's warning users to change their passwords immediately, as it's investigating yet another password leak.
Apparently the UK-based Last.fm is looking into how "some" of its users passwords have been leaked on the internet. The music service doesn't think this is a coincidence with all the other leaks happening at the moment, and I'm inclined to agree. It seems hackers are on a password-grabbing rampage of late.
This all goes to show that it's pretty easy to pinch passwords, even if they are meant to be secure. Where there's a will there's a hacker capable of doing it. Time to start generating totally random passwords for every service then -- good luck remembering them all though. [Last.fm via BBC]
