the sound of a million passwords changing

A bad day for my friends at Spotify. First the news of a security breach that compromised the personal information of their one million users – followed by the outage of the website as a million people all tried to change their passwords at once.  But despite all of this trouble, the Spotify player kept playing music.


It is interesting to see how Spotify is handling their first big crises. So far, they seem to be doing most things right –  they are being open about what the problem was and they have already fixed the problem that has caused the breach.   Looks like they may need to be a bigger web server though.
