Spotify has gotten itself into some hot water recently, as users have reported a wave of strange activity on their accounts.

The company denies that it's been hacked, even though log in details for thousands of users were posted on the website PasteBin – a website where you can store text online for a set period of time. 

Spotify released a statement, saying:

“We monitor Pastebin and other sites regularly. When we find Spotify credentials, we first verify that they are authentic, and if they are, we immediately notify affected users to change their passwords.”

This isn't the first time Spotify have has hacker complaints.

A plethora of their customers' premium account details had been accessed by hackers earlier this year, when information was leaked online, with a similar incident happening during November last year.

It has been suggested that users should go ahead and change their password, for safe keeping, and to double check that they're not one of the unlucky ones.
