Bad actors have dropped notice that they’ve obtained an archive containing data purportedly scraped from 500 million LinkedIn profiles. A sample of data was posted on a popular hacker forum, with another 2 million records leaked as proof of the haul. More than 780,000 email addresses are associated with this leak. The initial listing contained 4 archives, but after LinkedIn denied the data breach, threat actors updated their ad to include 6 additional archives that allegedly include 327 million scraped LinkedIn profiles, putting the overall number of scraped profiles at 827 million including potential duplicates.
