LinkedIn and iPhone / Android Calendar Security Issue

Posted by on June 6, 2012

Hot on the heels of the LinkedIn password database leak, arstechnica today posted an article alerting users to a potential security vulnerability in the most recent versions of the LinkedIn app on Android and iOS devices. You can read more about the issue over at ars, and about LinkedIn’s response on the company’s blog.

The lastest advice for users of the service is to log in to the LinkedIn website and change your password as soon as possible, and to disable calendar syncing in the LinkedIn App on your phone or tablet, as well as making sure to update to the newly released version on Android through the Play store. Apparently an iOS update is pending Apple’s approval and will be available soon.
