LinkedIn Promised to Buckle Up

Not less than three days ago, it was reported that close to 6 million user accounts of LinkedIn had been compromised.

LinkedIn says it has cleaned-up mess and promised to buckle up.

It has indeed notified users via email, encouraging them to change password immediately.

It has hired outside forensics experts to assist as company engineers and the FBI seek to get to the bottom of the break-in. The company said on Friday it did not know if any other account information was stolen besides passwords.

This is yet another good case study.

The computer security happenings lately have been most exciting. For more information.
