Hackers are stealing LinkedIn users' information by secretly injecting malware. They are carrying out this attack by using the message exchange facilities of social networking sites made for professionals. In order to carry out cyber attacks, hackers first invite users to join the accounts of various individuals or organizations.

By clicking on a link or opening a file, the malware enters the user's device and begins to smuggle information.
