LinkedIn’s training arm resets 55,000 members’ passwords
Lynda.com, the training arm of LinkedIn, on Saturday issued email notices to about 55,000 members whose data it says has been persued by “unauthorized third party.”
The letter sent to members, two of whom thoughtfully forwarded it to El Reg, reads as follows:
We recently became aware that an unauthorized third party breached a database that included some of your Lynda.com learning data, such as contact information and courses viewed. We are informing you of this issue out of an abundance of caution.
