Have you tried to log in to Linkedin today? Hopefully you didn’t get a message saying your password was reset. If so that means you were among the millions who had their password stolen and then leaked on the internet.
This is starting to happen more and more as hacking technology gets easier to acquire at a lost cost. What to do? Stop registering to every social network that pops up. The more we register the more we use the same password and eventually the bad guy gain the password that opens or money account by breaking into the 100th networked we’ve signed into. Here’s the news:
Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid. These members will also receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. There will not be any links in this email.
