LinkedIn finally admits.

"compromised accounts will receive an email from LinkedIn with instructions on how to reset their passwords. These owners then will get a second email from LinkedIn customer support that explains the situation at greater length"

It took them a little too long to admit. Shame on them.

A site such as Linkedin should have top notch security. Lesson learnt hopefully.

After the beginning of the month hack, they now are offline for + 3 hours. Wordwide outage.
Think I am going to cancel my Premium membership as they realy start screwing things up.
