ReverbNation, an online platform for musician, has just informed their customer about the data breach. The incident had happened in January 2014, but law enforcement has informed them recently.
According to the law enforcement, an individual had illegally gained unauthorized access to ReverbNation’s vendor’s computer systems and accessed user’s information in database.
In an email to customers, ReverbNation explained that, “While no credit card data was accessed, some user information included in the database such as e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords, and possibly other user information users provided to us, such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and/or dates of birth may have been accessed.”
Although passwords are encrypted but for precautionary measure they suggested customers to change their ReverbNation password as well as password of any other account or website which share your same ReverbNation password. They also recommended password management tools like 1Password and LastPass.
