We’ve recently noticed a potential risk to your LinkedIn account coming from outside LinkedIn

So!,

A few minutes ago I got this email from LinkedIn…
Looks like someone is selling 117 million LinkedIn passwords.

LinkedIn was hacked four years ago, and what initially seemed to be a theft of 6.5 million passwords has actually turned out to be a breach of 117 million passwords.

 

Hi Paulo,
To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on LinkedIn, we’re regularly monitoring our site and the Internet to keep your account information safe.
We’ve recently noticed a potential risk to your LinkedIn account coming from outside LinkedIn. Just to be safe, you’ll need to reset your password the next time you log in.
Here’s how:
  1. Go to the LinkedIn website.
  2. Next to the password field, click the “Forgot your password” link, and enter your email address.
  3. You’ll get an email from LinkedIn asking you to click a link that will help you reset your password.
  4. Once you’ve reset your password, a confirmation email will be sent to the confirmed email addresses on your account.
Thanks for helping us keep your account safe,
The LinkedIn Team
