Is your LinkedIn account password hacked?

Professional networking website LinkedIn suffered a major security breach of its password database recently. Reportedly a file containing more than 6 million hashed passwords appeared in an online forum in Russia. Out of these 6 million hashed passwords, more than 200,000 passwords have been cracked so far. The file does not contain user names but only has a list of passwords. However, the breach is serious and LinkedIn confirmed the hack on their official blog yesterday afternoon.

LinkedIn has taken immediate measures by sending emails to all compromised accounts with instructions on how to reset their passwords.

We recommend that all our users who have a LinkedIn account and have received an email from LinkedIn indicating that their password is no longer valid should remember the following:

1. Email received from LinkedIn will not have any links. It will consist of steps to reset your password. If you have received an email with links asking you to reset your password, the chances are the email is fake or a phishing email.

2. Do not click on any link in the email asking you to reset the password. To reset your LinkedIn password follow the steps given by the official LinkedIn blog here – “Official blog with steps.”

Even if you have not received an email from LinkedIn but are facing trouble while trying to log in to your LinkedIn account, you can reset your password by following the steps given by the official LinkedIn blog here – “Official blog with steps.”

why one month quick heal trial version show Files & folders and external drives with green & 2 OK ticks whereas emails and Internet & network protection shows 2 XX in red ie. not supported ? is it correct or is there any fault in loading the programme & should give all 4 round in green showing full protection?

Yes, the hack has been confirmed to be made in Russia. There is good news that “Used Id” information is not on the “Hacked List” and only passwords. Its bad news that Linked IN had not equipped their security with regards to data, however a Linked In official has told that “Salting” a security layer has been added.

Bottom line – If you have a Linked In account, Change your password.
