If you are one of the many LinkedIn users, now might be a very good time to change your password.
A user of a Russian forum has claimed to have hacked the passwords of around 6.46 million accounts. We’re not yet sure whether the user names have also been compromised.
So far, there hasn’t been a confirmation on the leak, however earlier today LinkedIn tweeted the following.
Our team is currently looking into reports of stolen passwords. Stay tuned for more.
