New LinkedIn phishing email making the rounds


It seems that LinkedIn cannot catch a break. After a rather large data breach that resulted in the theft of a large number of user account information (including unsalted passwords protected by an outdated encryption scheme) there is now a new phishing email making the rounds that is aimed specifically at LinkedIn users.  Although phishing emails that target users of social networks are nothing new this one is the first that we have seen that targets LinkedIn users and also appears to be sent directly to LinkedIn user email addresses.
