Last.fm became the latest website to announce it is investigating a password leak.

The music-streaming website said through Twitter on Thursday that users should change their passwords.

“We will never email you a direct link to update your settings or ask for your password,” Last.fm writes on its site. “We strongly recommend that your new Last.fm password is different to the password you use on other services.”

Last.fm is the third popular site in three days to experience a breach.

Linkedin and eHarmony both said earlier this week that users should change their login information.

According to Ars Technica, hackers posted password information from 8 million accounts to Insidepro.com.
