LinkedIn has provided an update on the reported theft of almost 6.5 million passwords. The social media website said it is "continuing to investigate" but that it has put measures in place for "the compromised accounts". A statement said:
We can confirm that some of the passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts.We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our members. We take the security of our members very seriously.
Users affected by the theft will find that their password is no longer valid. They will receive an email explaining how to reset their passwords, but are warned not to do this by following any links in emails. LinkedIn did not say how many accounts were compromised.
