Change LinkedIn password immediately

The business social networking company, LinkedIn, announced yesterday that it is looking into reports of stolen passwords.  According to an Associated Press wire release, the breach has not yet been confirmed, but could impact as many as six million users or more.

While LinkedIn hasn’t yet required users to change passwords, Central National Bank’s Information Security office is asking customers and employees with a LinkedIn account to change their passwords at the first opportunity.  A password change is accessible from the LinkedIn site and/or from the LinkedIn app on your mobile device.

Furthermore, CNB customers and employees should not click on any emails seemingly from LinkedIn as scammers could leverage this event to obtain access to other information.
