A user on a Russian forum has claimed to have downloaded 6.46 million user hashed passwords from LinkedIn.
If you have a “weak” password, your account could be compromised. Suggest you get onto your LinkedIn straight away to something stronger that contains special character’s, numbers or caps to give it more muscle. This can happen to any of your online profile’s so it’s recommended that you change your password from time to time to keep your profile’s safe.
LinkedIn has more than 150 million users worldwide. This apparent hack appears to affect less than 5 percent of its user base.
