LinkedIn suffers security breach

LinkedIn Corp has said it has finished disabling all affected accounts, after hackers exposed millions of its users' passwords, and did not believe other members were at risk, Reuters has reported. The break-in has damaged the reputation of the high-flying company with more than 160 million members, and raised questions about whether LinkedIn had done enough to safeguard the private information of its users. LinkedIn said in a blog post it had notified all affected users - whose accounts had not been accessed - and added it did not think other users had been compromised. "Thus far, we have no reports of member accounts being breached as a result of the stolen passwords. Based on our investigation, all member passwords that we believe to be at risk have been disabled," it said.
