A day after some of its users' passwords were compromised by hackers, LinkedIn has said it has not confirmed any account break-ins.
The business social network said it had not received "verified reports of unauthorized access" to its users' accounts as a result of an attack by a hacker who posted 8 million passwords online over the last few days.
Even so, the company is being targeted by phishing scams trying to steal its users' login and password combinations.
The latest LinkedIn predators are sending the company's users phony emails meant to resemble official messages sent by the company. Phishing scams often include links to websites disguised as real login pages to trick users into entering their login names and passwords. Other phishing scams ask users to open attachments that infect their computers.
The slew of phishing scams has been confirmed by security experts online, but they have not been addressed by LinkedIn.
When asked about the scams Wednesday, the company chose not to comment. On Thursday, the company said it had previously addressed phishing scams and directed the reporter to a blog post from 2010.
