In the News: Millions of LinkedIn Passwords Leaked

June 6, 2012  |  by Garry

MRIS is committed to notifying you about news alerts that could impact your business. LinkedIn has confirmed that some members of the social networking site have had their passwords compromised. Some news outlets are reporting that 6.5 million LinkedIn users may be impacted. It is highly recommended that anyone with a LinkedIn profile immediately change their password.  If your LinkedIn password is used on another site as well, you should also change that password immediately. 

For more information from LinkedIn on this topic, please click here.  Sophos Security also offers some helpful tips on this topic.  

When setting passwords, keep these best practices in mind:

  1. Never use dictionary words
  2. Always use strong passwords
  3. Frequently change your password
  4. Do not reuse passwords
  5. Never use the same password on multiple sites
  6. Do not share passwords
