SMFH…the internet is far from safe!!! As a general rule of thumb you should change your password frequently.
According to various “unconfirmed reports” there has been a security breach at social network LinkedIn. Hackers reportedly uploaded 6,458,020 passwords to a Russian user forum, but it is still unclear if they also accessed the corresponding usernames. LinkedIn has yet to confirm the breach stating on a company blog, “Our security team continues to investigate this morning’s reports of stolen passwords. At this time, we’re still unable to confirm that any security breach has occurred. You can stay informed of our progress by following us on Twitter @LinkedIn and @LinkedInNews.”
As a reminder, to protect yourself and your computer, it’s always a good idea to frequently change your password.
