A hacker is selling 117 million LinkedIn logins on the Dark Web
It might be time to change your LinkedIn password… A Russian hacker is selling the email and passwords of 117 million users on a Dark Web marketplace.
A hacker is trying to sell the account information, including emails and passwords, of 117 million LinkedIn users.
The hacker, who goes by the name “Peace,” told Motherboard that the data was stolen during the LinkedIn breach of 2012. At the time, only around 6.5 million encrypted passwords were posted online, and LinkedIn never clarified how many users were affected by that breach.
Turns out it was much worse than anybody thought.
