What should you do if you have a LinkedIn account?
1. Change your LinkedIn password.
2. LinkedIn has announced that it will email all users whose accounts were affected and give them instructions as to what to do next.
3. Don’t click on any email links asking you to change your password, as that could be someone attempting to steal your information – some phishing attacks have already been reported. Which seems to me to indicate that the hackers do have the email logins.
4. If you have used the same username and password on other accounts it’s probably a good idea to change the password on those accounts.
