Spotify subscribers may have been hacked to stream fake artists

A new report suggests that a number of seemingly fake musicians garnered tens of thousands of plays on Spotify in late 2018. Users allegedly claimed no memory of playing a number of artists that ended up on their annual year-end lists from the company. Band names like the Bergenulo Five, Bratte Night, DJ Bruej, were apparently common among those affected by the issue.
