LinkedIn sheds more light on breach
LinkedIn, criticised for inadequate network security after hackers exposed millions of its users' passwords, said on Saturday it had finished disabling all affected accounts and did not believe other members were at risk.
The company, a social network for business professionals, promised to beef up security, days after more than six million customer passwords turned up on underground sites frequented by criminal hackers.
The break-in, the latest in a string of high-profile Internet breaches around the world, 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. Some cyber security experts had warned that the company could uncover further data losses over the coming days as it tries to figure out what happened.
