As you may be aware, Trinity’s IT Department subscribes to a national IT security threat monitoring service. Today, the threat monitoring service alerted us that some Trinity accounts (including e-mail) may have been associated with the LinkedIN security breach that was recently reported.
Although the breach does not directly involve systems at Trinity Christian College; we are choosing to notify you concerning this occurrence because users sometimes reuse the same password for multiple purposes. If you use your Trinity e-mail address and password to associate your LinkedIN account we strongly suggest that you change the password associated with your Trinity Christian College account by visiting http://reset.trnty.edu.
According to LinkedIN, the credential dump contained salted hashed passwords for the accounts, but these are relatively easily broken these days. We don’t provide that information in an unsolicited e-mail notification.
Please contact the Trinity IT Helpdesk by calling 708-239-4858 or by e-mailing Helpdesk@trnty.edu if you have any questions or need assistance.
