Now, according to The Register:

A hacker is attempting to sell 117 million LinkedIn users’ emails and passwords on the dark web. Respected security researcher Troy Hunt, an expert in breach verification, says that the breach looks legit, which in itself is reason enough to take the incident seriously. Logins are for sale on at least two hacking-related websites at prices of 5 BTC. LinkedIn reportedly plans to reset a large number of accounts to limit the damage.


Bottom Line: If you’re a LinkedIn member, change your password NOW and get in the habit of changing it regularly.
