Now is a great time to change your LinkedIn password. You may recall the recent fallout from the company’s 2012 breach, when the social network for
professionals revealed that many more users had been affected than previously reported – 117 million credentials were feared to have been leaked, as opposed to 6.5 million.
Why now, you may ask. Well, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Pinterest and Twitter accounts were hacked, and a hacking group claims to have found his credentials in the leaked LinkedIn cache. Hacking group OurMine Team boasted of its exploits via Zuckerberg’s own Pinterest and Twitter accounts. While the offending posts have now been removed, and the OurMine Team account Twitter has been suspended as well, screenshots remain.
