LinkedIn users are advised not to click on links in e-mail messages to sign into their accounts, they should instead, go directly to LinkedIn's website located at www.linkedin.com, and sign-in from there. And, if they need to update or verify their account information, they will be notified. This will prevent them from clicking on links in phishing email messages sent by cybercriminals that go to fraudulent websites, which steal personal information and Linkedin online account credentials.
Linkedin users who know or think they may have been tricked by the phishing Linkedin e-mail message (see below), are asked to change their Linkedin account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently by cybercriminals.
