LinkedIn 2012 hack just got worse

Last Update: May 18, 2016

News in that LinkedIn are having serious problems called the "Real Deal" with a hacker named Peace offering massive amounts of information for sale in Bitcoins

This refers back to a 2012 problem when LinkedIn reported that 6.5 million accounts had been compromised ... The new figure is 117million log ins for sale although the real deal is the e-mail listing of the businesses affected.

If you are involved with Linked in then you should investigate this further without delay.

Obviously your log in needs attention and a change of e-maill could be on the cards.

More information can be seen on several sites. If you just Google "LinkedIn Hack"

Stay safe my friends
