  • Personal data from 500 million LinkedIn users has been scraped and is reportedly for sale on a hacking forum.
  • LinkedIn said it's investigating and confirmed that the dataset includes scraped data from its site.
  • The news comes after personal data from 533 million Facebook users was found to be exposed.
 
We have investigated an alleged set of LinkedIn data that has been posted for sale and have determined that it is actually an aggregation of data from a number of websites and companies. It does include publicly viewable member profile data that appears to have been scraped from LinkedIn. This was not a LinkedIn data breach, and no private member account data from LinkedIn was included in what we’ve been able to review.
