LinkedIn Data leaked:
There is also the data of 500 million users, including the user's phone number, email address, workplace information, and other information. This thing has been disclosed by CyberNews. It has been said in the report that the data draw of the users is present on the web and the hackers are selling the group at a high price of million.
LinkedIn denies the allegation:
After the data leak case, LinkedIn said in its statement that, it investigated it where it found that the data which has been made available for sale is taken from websites and companies and their platform has no link to it.
The company further said that, in the review that we did, it was found that, it definitely has profile data of publicly viewable members which is taken from LinkedIn but it is not a data breech.
The company said that private member's account data has not been taken from our platform. The company further said that, whenever a member tries to take the data, we do not give permission to it and immediately stop it. But the report clearly states that the data of users has been taken from LinkedIn itself.
It is known that a few days ago, the data of 53.3 crore users of Facebook was leaked out of which 61 lakh data was also from the Indian users. This leaked data also included every information of the users. In this case, Facebook had said in its clarification that this happened in the year 2019, which was fixed by the company in the same year.
