A group of Russian computer hackers claimed that they have stolen an estimated six million LinkedIn users passwords and later posted them online. But their claim could not be verified independently.
LinkedIn in a Twitter post said that the claims are being investigated and to stay tuned for more news.
The group claimed that the stolen passwords were uploaded onto a site without the user names. Several hundred tweeted that their LinkedIn passwords had hashes.
LinkedIn has an estimated 161 million users.
