    ◎根據英國廣播公司BBC的一份新報導,神秘的藝人和曲目再次出現在Spotify上並被駭客放進用戶的帳戶和播放清單之中,這顯然會產生虛假的串流次數和不應有的收入。

    ◎包括Bergenulo Five、Bratte Night、DJ Bruej和Doublin Night在內的無名藝人出現在從未聽過這些藝人的用戶帳戶中。根據BBC的報導,每位藝人都有一些共同點,包括歌曲很短且只有很少的歌詞甚至沒有歌詞,專輯封面使用通用的插畫,以及簡短的非描述性的歌曲名稱。類似的假串流的報導首次出現在去年秋天。Spotify否認有駭客的存在並且拒絕了BBC希望獲得藝人聯繫方式的請求,BBC所有試圖直接聯繫到樂團的嘗試都失敗了。但就在試圖接觸的幾天後,大多數的神秘藝人都從Spotify上消失了。

    ◎根據BBC的報導,這些在Spotify上出現但隨後又消失的神秘藝人包括:Bergenulo Five、Onxyia、Cappisko、Hundra Ao、Dj Bruej、Doublin Night、Bratte Night、Funkena。

    Mysterious artists and tracks are showing up again on Spotify and being hacked into user accounts and playlists, apparently to generate fake streams and undeserved income, according to a new BBC report.

    Unknown artists with names including Bergenulo Five, Bratte Night, DJ Bruej and Doublin Night are showing up in the accounts of users that have never heard of the acts. Each artists has a few things in common: short songs with few or no lyrics, illustrated with generic cover art, and short, non-descriptive song titles, according to the BBC.

    Reports of similar fake streams first surfaced in the Fall of last year.

    Spotify has denied that there was a hack and declined a BBC request for contact details of the artists. All of the BBC's attempts to contact the bands directly failed, as well. But within a few days of reaching out, most of the mystery artists had disappeared from Spotify.

    Some of the mystery artists who appeared, then disappeared on Spotify, according to the BBC:

    Bergenulo Five

    Onxyia

    Cappisko

    Hundra Ao

    Dj Bruej

    Doublin Night
