This data leak was also listed on the online hackers forum.

On this data leak, LinkedIn says that no data has been leaked. This data has been extracted by scraping the network, although LinkedIn has definitely said that it is investigating the matter. After preliminary investigation, LinkedIn has said that the personal data of any LinkedIn member has not been leaked. The company says that scraping data is a violation of LinkedIn's privacy policy.

The information of 700 million users involved in the new data leak is being sold on the dark web. Hackers have posted data of one million users in the public domain of the dark web. RestorePrivacy has given the first information about this data leak.

At the same time, 9to5Google has also contacted hackers regarding this data leak. Hackers have told that they have extracted this data through the LinkedIn API.
