LinkedIn Breach 😳😱

So basically everyone that has a LinkedIn was affected... aka everyone here. Time to change some things in your settings. I'd start with 2FA

Dan Price is all about equality... His company will purposefully will allow themselves to be breached so that they can be the same

And then he would most certainly post about how he gave the hacker a 70k salary to do it.

How beautifully ironic it would be if Dan Price's fall from grace came from a LinkedIn breach.

What does Dan Price have to do with this? Honeslty just curious. I blocked him awhile ago because I was tired of the self pats for paying 70k in Seattle which isn’t that much there

Nothing. It was a cheap jab. I sneak one in on him at least once a week on here.

Wow of all those social platforms, you’d think LI would have a better cybersecurity... I would love to be in cybersecurity right now. I’d send this to all my prospects and be like "You wouldn’t want to be next"

This is the quickest way to blacklisted if you're slinging cybersecurity wares. After every major breach there are CISOs shaming vendors on LinkedIn and twitter for selling like this.


I (usually) give security practitioners the benefit of the doubt. They know they have target's on their back but unfortunately they're often held back by other executives who don't think security is worth investment.

Yeah fear mongering never works. I am also in cyber security, and intentionally never ever mention breaches directly.Β

Had a prospect who WAS breached and they couldn’t even get money to get a solution that would have helped prevent the breach. Us or anybody else.

With as much as LinkedIn robs people to use Sales Nav you’d think they’d have better infrastructure to prevent this

I thought this was just data scraped? Isn't all that info available publicly even if you don't have an account?

No not all of it. It gave up geo locations, addresses, phone numbers etc. not all available on LI

That's aggregated though, from significant data scraping - calling it a LI breach is to make it valuable on the blackmarket. It's not 'really' a LI breach - they've just used LI as the structure to hang their aggregated data on.

Also, the things you listed are all available on LI, only phone numbers would be a surprise (and thats only if they are a direct dial, tbh - which most won't be)

Everybody needs to relax a bit here. The only information that was "breached" was publicly available information. Still not great, but it's not like they stole your passwords or CC information
