Linked In Breach?
Was Linked In Hacked?
by Robbi Drake
Many millions of people use Linked in for business networking and to gather testimonials or to interact with business partners or acquaintances. If you are one of those people, Business Insider reported this morning that Linked In may have been breached to the tune of about six million passwords. While there has as of yet been no confirmation from Linked In, who say they are looking into the matter, you will want to be careful to review your Linked In account and just in case, remove and replace your password. If you are using the same password elsewhere, make it a point to change those passwords as well.
Linked In passwords can be changed by selecting “Settings” in the upper right hand corner and then choosing Change next to the term “password”
Select a password that is more random. Even if you use a word or a phrase, add a capital letter to the mixture and inject a number or special character to it, which is more difficult to guess or to hack.
