It’s been reported (although not yet confirmed) that 6.5 million passwords were stolen from LinkedIn and posted on a Russian hacker site in the last day or so. Even if it isn’t true, you should change your password form time to time to keep it secure and this is a great opportunity to do just that.
To change your password, go to LinkedIn, click on your account setting, and then navigate to Change Password. You can also navigate directly to the Change Password page if you’re logged in.
You can also follow updates on the thefts on LinkedIn’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/LinkedInNews/
