"The core of the attack comes in a phishing email, in this case, one purportedly sent by LinkedIn, to a member indicating someone is trying to connect with them on that social network," said Doug Olenick, SC Magazine.
The user gets a fake login page. The attack method is described in security parlance as a credentials phishing technique, which requires the use of a typo-squatting domain. The idea is to let the user give away his/her credentials.
One obvious piece of advice, however, was offered and that is to be vigilant about links. Also, a perspective on what two-factor authentication is and isn't is helpful. It is a tighter solution than a basic password only mechanism. It is an extra layer of security.
