LinkedIn's skill learning unit Lynda has discovered that unauthorized third parties have accessed a user database. The social network has reset the passwords of 55,000 accounts of its users. In addition, although Lynda has informed 9.5 million of its users that "There is no evidence that the data has been publicly exposed," the social network has begun to take additional steps to protect the accounts of its users.
