Lynda.com Warning: Dec. 23, 2016
Online training company Lynda.com warned 9.5 million users this week that hackers accessed a database containing users' contact information, including phone numbers, email addresses and mailing addresses, and details about courses viewed. Lynda.com, which is owned by LinkedIn, sent this notice “out of an abundance of caution,” saying there is “no evidence that any data has been misused or made publicly available.”
During the same breach, the passwords for a smaller group of users, about 55,000 accounts, were also accessed and are being reset by Lynda.com. Passwords for Rowan University users are not stored on Lynda.com’s servers and were not compromised during this incident.
Lynda.com is an online training library that Rowan employees and students can access for free. Lynda.com offers 24/7 online access to thousands of training videos for software like Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe Photoshop and even Pinterest and Twitter. The training videos can be viewed anywhere you have internet access and there are videos available for all skill levels. Most training videos also come with exercise files that allow you to follow along with the lively and interesting instructors.
The Lynda.com Online Training Library® is also available on the free Lynda.com iPhone and iPad App.
