The data of 700 million users of the LinkedIn platform were put up for sale on the Web. On June 22, a user of one of the popular hacker forums put up a databank with information from LinkedIn users for sale.

At the moment, the platform has about 756 million users, that is, the leak affects 92% of all LinkedIn users. Stolen data includes email addresses, phone numbers, full names, geolocation data, resume data, social media accounts, and even salary and physical address information.

The hacker claims that the data was obtained through the LinkedIn API. For a huge database, he asks for only $ 5,000. Specialists of LinkedIn, in turn, stated that not all of the data in the leak can be obtained through the API.

While we’re still investigating this issue, our initial analysis suggests that the dataset includes information sourced from LinkedIn as well as information sourced from other sources. This was not a LinkedIn data breach, and our investigation revealed that the personal details of LinkedIn members were not disclosed. Collection of data from LinkedIn is a violation of our terms of service and we are constantly working to protect the privacy of our members.
