LinkedIn Accused of Hacking Email Accounts of its Customers

Linkedin people

LinkedIn has been accused in a new court case being held against them in which claims are made that they’ve been using the password and login information of users to access their email accounts on third party services such as GMail. Access was allegedly gained through hack-like methods and then users contacts and address books were spammed with invites to the professional resume and networking website. This isn’t the first time someone has accused LinkedIn of doing this, and even their own website is home to over 500 complaints of this exact allegation.
