LinkedIn Hacked

If you haven’t heard the reports on the news and gossip in your office LinkedIn confirmed yesterday that they had been hacked by an overseas entity.  They reported over 6.5 million users had their passwords compromised.  Since so many use LinkedIn, I strongly encourage you suggest to your employees that they change their passwords, if they haven’t done so already.  If they use the same password on other site accounts, I would suggest they update those as well to include their office.  You’d be surprise how many people use the same ones on everything.   If you have any questions, please give us a call.  Here is a link to one of the official reports:
