Over 20 million user data from the music streaming service Mixcloud has surfaced in the Darknet. According to the operator, although passwords were sometimes affected, since these are stored exclusively encrypted, there is nothing to worry about.
Mixcloud continues to write that a majority of users use a Facebook account to sign in to the streaming service. In this case, no passwords would be stored, so they could not have come into the hands of the criminals.
Change passwords as a precaution
It is very unlikely that passwords were actually compromised, Mixcloud continues. However, the service advises its users to change passwords, especially if they are also used in other applications for login.
Furthermore, the operator points out that basically no data such as credit card numbers or postal addresses of users would be stored.
More details, such as how it could come to the data leak, are not known. However, the platform operator assures that the incident will continue to be investigated intensively.
