The social media is abuzz over news that some 6.5 million LinkedIn passwords have been hacked and leaked on the web. Until now, LinkedIn has been saying that it is looking into this and so far, has been unable to determine whether or not this bit is true. Much to the disappointment of LinkedIn users, the company has now confirmed that passwords have indeed been leaked.


Naturally, the company can not go all-out and take all the brunt. So the official post from LinkedIn, specifically about the issue of hacked passwords, states “We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts.”

However, the company seems pursuing the whole issue very proactively. It is manifest in the fact that LinkedIn has suspended compromised accounts immediately and sent out an email to the users of these accounts to reset their passwords.

Interestingly, the company is saying that in the email about resetting the password, it won’t include any links. We do wonder how else will the users be prompted to change their passwords, especially since their accounts are suspended too.

While this may sound confusing to LinkedIn users, the company assures that it will clear things out eventually, once the affected accounts are secure, “These affected members will receive a second email from our Customer Support team providing a bit more context on this situation and why they are being asked to change their passwords.”

Naturally, it is obvious that the LinkedIn population is feeling vexed over the whole thing but then again, digital security is a tricky thing and hackers have recently been able to gain access to the most secure of places on the web. So while we do think LinkedIn should secure its system further, the good thing is that the company is working hard to mitigate the damage done.
