Hey there. So after getting the password reset notice due to Soundcloud finding a leak of my user data in another service I want to know what this service was? Who leaked my data? How do they find out about it? What exactly was leaked? I can't find anything about this and their vague statement just leaves me with worries. Cause yea, sure, I've changed it but I want to know about what I shouldn't be using or what happened to help avoid this problem. It basically feels like when my bank account is on hold due to my pin being compromised from a modified pinpad but they won't tell me which business is the one that was compromised so as a result I end up being affected again. I'd like to be able to do more than just change one password.
