Some LinkedIn, eHarmony passwords leaked online

continued from page 1

Cluley warned that LinkedIn users should be careful about malicious email generated around the incident. The fear is that people, after hearing about the incident, would be tricked into clicking on links in those emails. Instead of getting to the real LinkedIn site to change a password, it would go to a scammer, who can then collect the information and use it for criminal activities.

LinkedIn said its emails will not include any links.

Shares of LinkedIn, which is based in Mountain View, Calif., gained 8 cents to close Wednesday at $93.08.

EHarmony is a private company based in Santa Monica, Calif.
