LinkedIn data risk - change password

By : Administrator
Published 4th October 2021

I had an alert over the weekend from the security website, If you're not signed up, I recommend it, and it notifies you when any of your personal data may be at risk.

It seems my email was part of the big hack attack earlier this year, along with the following info from LinkedIn:
Education levels, Email addresses, Genders, Geographic locations, Job titles, Names, Social media profiles

So strongly recommend anyone changes their password, and as usual, never use the same email/password combination on multiple sites. 

News on the original hack here: Hackers scraped data from 500 million LinkedIn users

LinkedIn response to the scraped data:  an-update-from-linkedin
