After hackers posted millions of encoded LinkedIn passwords to a Russian hacker site on Wednesday, criminals used news of the breach to trick unsuspecting users into downloading malware that can be used to extract financial gain.
Shortly after the breach surfaced, LinkedIn users began receiving e-mails from what, at first glance, looked like LinkedIn. The e-mails asked users to confirm their e-mail address by clicking on an embedded link. But the link took users to scam sites, such as an illegal online pharmaceutical site that sells Viagra and other products.
