Stolen Data Of 117 Million LinkedIn Users Being Sold On The Dark Web

A hacker who calls himself “Peace”
is offering to sell the emails and
password details of about 117
million LinkedIn users on the dark
web.

The data is being sold on a dark
web site called The Real Deal.

The stolen data is purportedly
being sold for 5 bitcoins ($2,200).

The hacker has also made a claim
that the data is part of the data that
was breached from LinkedIn in
2012.

At that time, details of over 6.5
million users surfaced online.

LinkedIn is apparently aware of the
recent data that has appeared
online.

The company said that they are
taking necessary steps to invalidate
the passwords and are contacting
their clients to immediately reset
their old passwords to improve
security.
