LinkedIn Phishing E-mails

Just as a “heads up” to our clients; there have been a large number of phishing e-mails lately claiming to be a LinkedIn reminder advising there is a pending invitation to add a new contact.  These look quite legitimate.

Always avoid clicking on links in e-mails, it is far better to visit the site in a normal fashion and check your messages and notifications on the site.  However to confirm the message’s legitimacy, hover your mouse over the link and you will see the true site destination in a popup.  Clicking on a masked link could be disastrous, a virus or an attempt to obtain user names and passwords.
