According to TechCrunch, a recent security breach at Spotify has resulted in hundreds of user email addresses being posted to Pastebin. 

Spotify is denying that they were hacked, but TechCrunch has reached out to numerous users who say their personal information on the site has been compromised.

Users who believe this to be a hack say they experienced situations where they were kicked off of the streaming platform by someone else logging into their account or music would show up in their saved folder that they never listened to. 

Spotify did release an official statement to TechCrunch 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."

We will have more information on this developing story as it arises.
