CNN has just reported that passwords have been hacked for over 6.5 LinkedIn user’s. The “World’s largest” and very popular social networking website is primarily used to stay connected with business associates. The source of the problem has not yet been revealed and the possible suspect is still unclear.
The use of these passwords could cause havoc within the business community. Can you imagine an imposter reaching out to your professional contacts with distasteful messages?
This is not good news for the owners of the site nor the user’s. So if you happen to get a message that seems out-of-line, you may want to consider it’s likely bogus.
How does this even happen with all the security measures in place these days? Rumor has it, the possible source is hiding behind a computer overseas. Only time will tell…
