Too Long; Didn't Read

A new LinkedIn Vulnerability Exposes Jobseekers to Phishing Attacks, Identity theft, and employment-related scams. Hackers can post jobs on behalf of any company they want, without the consent or knowledge of the original company! This vulnerability can be exploited by con artists for massive phishing attacks, identity theft, or redirecting candidates to a malicious or phishing website. LinkedIn didn't do anything further to tackle the issue, which means, the vulnerability still exists. The Cyphere reached to BleepingComputer to reconfirm their claims.
