Hackers hit cybersecurity conference


An online cybersecurity event on Linkedin with 2,500 people already logged in had to be cancelled after hackers launched an attack in the Linkedin event’s chat window. Australian Institute of Company Directors had been scheduled to run an an online event today for nearly 5,000 registrants at which the organization planned to discuss its new “cybersecurity governance principles.” After the event, scheduled to commence on LinkedIn Live at 1 PM local time, did not begin punctually, hackers posted into the event chat window an official-looking Eventbrite type link, instructing users to click that link and resubmit their credit card details to join the event.

Hundreds of people fell for this attack.
