LinkedIn Shares Shrug Off Password Hack
eHarmony, the popular online dating site, was a target of a password hacking scheme on Wednesday as well; however, only a small fraction of user passwords were compromised, according to the company's blog.
Like LinkedIn, eHarmony reassured its users of its "robust security measures, including password hashing and data encryption, to protect our members' personal information."
Investors seem to be satisfied that both companies are continuing to investigate the security breaches, but another hacking incident in the world of social networking may cause traffic to slow and investor confidence to wane.
