Some LinkedIn Passwords Stolen and Leaked Online
The social network known as LinkedIn said on Wednesday that many of its users' passwords were stolen and leaked online. Apparently, over six million passwords were distributed online, but not all of them were accurate. The company is currently investigating this manner.
I found this article interesting because I never understood why people bother stealing passwords on the internet. After reading this article, I still don't know why, but at least I know more details about the severity of this issue.
