We recently reported that LinkedIn has been lambasted by security researchers for sending over user’s iOS calender events to its servers. And now, LinkedIn is back, yet again, over more security issues. This time, it is a lot more serious. A Russian hacker is reportedly claiming that he was able to hack into LinkedIn and has now posted 6.5 million LinkedIn passwords online.


So far, the claim of this hacker hasn’t been confirmed but there is a flurry of concerns being cited all across the social media. Users are rushing over to their LinkedIn accounts to change their passwords.

The concern of the users has further heightened as news trickle from the social media that indeed a list of hashed LinkedIn passwords have been found online. Although these passwords are encrypted using SHA-1, which is a very secure encryption method, chances are that weak passwords will be easier to crack for the hackers.

In case the whole things turns out to be true, for which we shall have to wait for the official word from LinkedIn, the hackers will be hard on the leaked data to decrypt it and lay their hands on actual passwords. And before that happens, security researchers are advising, its best that you change your LinkedIn password immediately.

So far, LinkedIn hasn’t responded to the queries as to whether or not the reports of leaked LinkedIn passwords are true. We really need an official word from the company so that we can be sure as to how real the threat is. So far, the only thing that the company has uttered through its Twitter account is: Our team continues to investigate, but at this time, we’re still unable to confirm that any security breach has occurred. Stay tuned here.
