More than four in 10 people clicked on a phishing link via ‘LinkedIn’ during Q3, says a new report. Data presented by the Atlas VPN team says that emails impersonating LinkedIn had a 47% open rate. Misleading subject lines were the biggest cause for concern, using keywords like “LinkedIn” to dupe customers. The scammers were using language such as “you were tagged in this photo on Facebook” to target people through various social networks, but LinkedIn scams were clicked most often.
