Everyday we hear of a new major paasword leak or security breach exposing our most cherished passwords as well as our personal data.
This time Sophos has reported that the redhot social media service LinkedIn was the target along with 6.5 million of their over 150 million users.
The perpetrators in this instance have identified as “Internet hackers”. The company is suggesting users chage their passwords immediately or as soon as possible. But, the horses are already out of the stable. If you use thesame password on other sites change those too anddon’t do that again.
LinkedIn has yet to officially comment on this breach chosing only to mention it in a Twitter feed.
