Second colossal LinkedIn “breach” in 3 months

Second colossal LinkedIn “breach” in 3 months, almost all users affected

Excerpt: LinkedIn has reportedly been breached—again—following reports of a massive sale of information scraped from 500M LinkedIn user profiles in the underground in May. According to Privacy Shark, the VPN company who first reported on this incident, a seller called TomLiner showed them he was in possession of 700 million Linkedin user records. That means almost all (92 percent) of LinkedIn’s users are affected by this.
