The increasingly popular music streaming service Spotify
has revealed that it was the target of malicious hackers at the end of 2008.
The Swedish based company issued a statement on its blog yesterday
warning "along with passwords, registration information such as your email address, birth date, gender, postal code and billing receipt details were potentially exposed. Credit card numbers are not stored by us and were not at risk. All payment data is handled by a secure 3rd party provider."
