The cybercriminals are turning smart and seems to be on a continuous search for better and bigger cyber-attack chances. The Linked’In users are facing a threat from these bad actors who are eyeing their accounts on Linked’In that have more genuine information as compared to their counterpart say Facebook.
The users receive a fake email asking them to log-in again as their account was not accessed for a long period of time. The email receivers are directed to a phishing site and then the users are prompted to enter the username and password for their primary account. This actually helps the hacker in obtaining the most genuine information in case the user has multiple Linked’In accounts.
You can save yourself from such dangers by observing the link carefully. If it doesn’t has the HTTPS connection, then you can be sure that you are being tricked by a scam. The users should also check for the domain in which they are landed. Do not simply open up the link assuming that it has been set by a known source.
