Change Your Password!
They got us again! Hacked another website and this time you may actually be affected.
I dont know HOW many times a day, I get those Linkedin requests and yes, I finally joined. I wanted to stay connected- to network in the biz so that i would have contacts throughout the industry.
And now it's been HACKED!
Some Russian spy or web forum stole 6.4 million passwords. The social networking website LinkedIn is investigating claims that more than 6 million passwords.
Not only did they hack them BUT they posted them on a Russian language forum?
Now we are getting the usual: LinkedIn cannot verify and they are investigating and the passwords are NOT correlated to user names....BUT you better change your password.
Here's how you do it:
clicking on their names in the upper right corner of the website's homepage, and then clicking on Settings and choosing the "Change" link next to password.
PLEASE change your password especially if you use THAT password at other sites.
