PlayMPE Hacked

PLAYMPE HACKED: PlayMPE, the digital delivery system used by record labels to distribute advance, watermarked albums to the media and radio, has been compromised by a hacker, causing several albums to leak before release date. Parent company Destiny Media claims the offender managed to obtain an account, which allowed him to access releases, but they have since disabled his ability to do so. According to PlayMPE, they “already have his first and last name, country and city of residence, photo, and an array of other identifying info,” including the fact he is a teenager from overseas, and that legal action is being contemplated. Apparently, the intruder was caught when he boasted of what he’d done online. (4/27a)
