LinkedIn Posts Update on Password Breach

We reported Thursday about LinkedIn’s security breach on Wednesday and six million user passwords being taken from the site. The passwords were later found published on a Russian website. The FBI is investigating the breach, but no information on how access was gained or who was responsible has been forthcoming. LinkedIn posted an update on Saturday answering the most common concerns of its members.

In this post, we want to address questions we’ve been receiving and share what we’ve learned so far about the incident, how we’ve responded, and what we’re doing to protect our members going forward.
