Financial information is reportedly secure, but it remains to be seen if private media libraries have been accessed.

Streaming media platform Plex sent out an email to its customers earlier today notifying them of a security breach that may have compromised account information, including usernames, email addresses, and passwords. While Plex’s message says “all account passwords that could have been accessed were hashed and secured in accordance with best practices,” it is still advising all users to change their passwords immediately.

The email states, “Yesterday, we discovered suspicious activity on one of our databases. We immediately began an investigation and it does appear that a third-party was able to access a limited subset of data that includes emails, usernames, and encrypted passwords.” There is no indication any other personal account information has been compromised, and there’s no mention of access to private media libraries having been accessed in the breach.

Privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves, and thereby express themselves selectively.
