Earlier today, streaming media platform Plex sent an email to customers notifying them of a security breach that may have compromised account information, including usernames, email addresses, and passwords. While there is no indication that encrypted passwords have been leaked, Plex is nonetheless advising all users to change their passwords immediately. From the report: Plex is one of the largest media server applications available, with around 20 million people using it to stream video, audio and photos they upload themselves, in addition to the growing variety of content the service makes available to paying subscribers. The email reads: “Yesterday we detected suspicious activity in one of our databases. We immediately began an investigation, and it appears that a third party gained access to a limited subset of data, including email, usernames, and encrypted passwords. ” There is no confirmation that other personal account information was compromised, and there is no mention of access to private media libraries (which may or may not include pirated content, private nudity, and other sensitive content) that was gained as a result of the breach.
