LinkedIn users targeted in email scams

  • LinkedIn users have been targeted by email scams a day after hackers leaked more than six million user passwords online.

    Emails that appeared to have been sent by the social-network website asked users to confirm their email address by clicking a link.

    The link took recipients to a site selling counterfeit drugs.

    Affected LinkedIn users have been told they will receive instructions in an email, which would not include a link, on how to change their details.
