LinkedIn Investigating Reports of Stolen Passwords
Business social network LinkedIn is confirming reports that some of its users’ passwords have been stolen and leaked onto the Internet.
The company said in a blog post Wednesday that some of the more than six million passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts. It did not say how many.
LinkedIn has a lot of information on its more than 160 million members, including potentially confidential information related to jobs being sought.
