LXer: LinkedIn DNS hijacked, traffic rerouted for an hour, and users’ cookies read in plain text

Published at LXer: cofounder Bryan Berg noticed that LinkedIn was DNS-hijacked tonight and that traffic was rerouted to a shady India-based site, That’s bad for LinkedIn, but there’s worse news for you. According to Berg, that site does not require SSL (secure sockets layer), which means that anyone who visited in the last hour or so sent it their long-lived session cookies in plain text … a potential security risk.
