Gawker Security Breach Forces Massive LinkedIn Password Changes
I received two security-related emails in the last 24 hours. One was from Gawker Media stating that there was a breach via its commenting system. The second email arrived this morning from LinkedIn, asking me to reset my password because my account was disabled for “security reasons.”
According to this Gawker blog post, Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Gawker, Jezebel, io9, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin, and Fleshbot were all affected by the security breach.
