Hacking a LinkedIn account
Well, if you start searching the web, you will notice that there are thousands of tutorials and articles that explain how hackers or cybercriminals can gain access to LinkedIn accounts.
Most of the explained attacks make use of social engineering techniques. This means, that someone will contact for example the target account holder, and tries to lure the holder into a step which provides the attackers the wanted credentials to gain access to the LinkedIn account. This method is called ‘spear-phishing’.
