The Dropbox data breach is a warning to update passwords
Recent data breaches underline the need for Internet users to regularly update the passwords for all their Internet accounts.
On Wednesday, Spotify reset the passwords of an unspecified number of users, just a day after data on 68 million accounts from Dropbox began reaching the Internet.
In a notice to users, Spotify said their credentials may have been compromised in a leak involving another service, if they used the same password for both.
“Spotify has not experienced a security breach and our user records are secure,” the company said in an email. The password reset is merely a precaution, it said.
