    Multiple attempts to hack LinkedIn acct

    Good thing Iím not using my LinkedIn acct for a job search. There were multiple attempts over much of last week to hack into it. I got this email each time. The hackers were mostly in Russia. I changed my password after the first attempt and right then added a passkey (stronger than password and canít be stolen since itís tied to your device). The attempts kept happening so I ended up hibernating my account so I didnít have to worry about it.

    Friends told me they were getting the same thing on their LinkedIn accts.

    This is the email I got.
