A Spotify user falls victim to hackers, a security update to be pushed as a result
This was revealed by Spotify's CTO, Oskar Stal, who claimed that iOS and Windows Phone users are not threatened by the security breach in question, as Android is the only OS that is susceptible to the breach at the moment. Apart from receiving a security update in a timely manner, certain Spotify users on Android will be asked to re-enter their login credentials, too. Additionally, they will have to download their offline playlists once again after their versions of the app get updated.
Yes, it looks like Spotify knows how to take care of its users and although it deserves praise for its timely actions, we can't help but think that the urgent hotfix is actually targeting an even bigger, newly-found security breach, which might expose not just one, but significantly more user profiles to similar threat, if not worse. As this is highly probable, we recommend that all Android users look for the security patch that will hopefully secure their Spotify accounts.
