Lax security caused LinkedIn hack, say reports
| by Naina Khedekar |
The professional social site, LinkedIn announced last week that it was hacked and more than 6 million passwords were stolen. LinkedIn is seeking help from the FBI to investigate the theft of passwords. Now, Sydney Morning Herald claims that hackers try breaking into companies almost everyday, but lax security on the part of LinkedIn, reportedly caused this attack. It is surprising that a data company, which collects data and makes profit hasn’t been able to combat such an attack. Security experts have pointed out that LinkedIn neither has a Chief Information Officer (CIO) nor a Chief Information Security Officer (CSIO) whose job is to monitor breaches. This makes the vice president of operations responsible for security.
Another one bites the dust
