Information security management firm Citadel released a statement today warning LinkedIn users to (1) change their passwords immediately and (2) be alert to phishing scams. See the entire warning here.
This comes after millions of LinkedIn passwords were breached. The company promises to send an email to customers instructing them on how to reset their passwords, but the company notes that the official email will NOT contain any links.
Be cautious of any emails you get purporting to be from LinkedIn. And while you wait, think of strong passwords (i.e., 12 character combinations of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters) and start replacing your other social media passwords too!
