Massive LinkedIn hack reported

SC Media

BleepingComputer reports that LinkedIn has been subjected to a widespread hacking campaign, with several users reporting account hijacking and lockouts while Google search volumes concerning the LinkedIn account hacks or recovery rose by 5,000% during the last few months.

With LinkedIn's support unresponsive regarding the incident, some users have been forced to pay the ransom demanded by attackers who compromised their accounts, a Cyberint report revealed. Numerous LinkedIn accounts may have been targeted through brute-force attacks and exposed credentials, with accounts having two-factor authentication and/or strong passwords having been temporarily locked.
