LinkedIn facing $5million lawsuit over password breach
LinkedIn hasn’t had the best of months this June and the news just keeps getting worse. The business networking giant is being for $5 million after 6million of their users had passwords leaked earlier in the month.
Erin O’Harra, a LinedIn spokewoman responded by saying “no account of any of our members has been breached as a result of this incident and we have no reason to believe that any LinkedIn user has been injured”, which is something that would have to be provided by the lawyers if their suit was to be successful.
I have a LinkedIn account, what should I do?
If you are a member of LinkedIn, there is a chance that your password may have been posted, but this would have been stripped of your associated username so you shouldn’t be at any risk of your account being hacked. To be sure that your account is secure, the best thing to do would be to change your password, which you can do by logging into to LinkedIn and going to the settings.
