HACKED: Lynda.com Has Been Hacked

Lynda.com sent out this statement today but has been very quiet on trying to keep it hidden and out of the news.

We recently became aware that an unauthorized third party breached a database that included some of your Lynda​.com learning data, such as contact information and courses viewed. We are informing you of this issue out of an abundance of caution.

Please know that we have no evidence that this data included your password. And while we have no evidence that your specific account was accessed or that any data has been made publicly available, ​we wanted to notify you as a precautionary measure.

If you have questions, we encourage you to contact us through our Support Center.

However what’s interesting is their twitter account, they are posting links that are broken and actually don’t go anywhere.  What’s also interesting is that the issue doesn’t seem to effect all users, (As I haven’t received an email myself, I have an account on Lynda.com through the New York Public Library.)
