Naukri had a security attack - Time to change your passwords

So the new victim is Naukri.com, the popular Indian job site, as it presumably has had some security attack with stolen account info.



They seem  like sending mails to individual  accounts, not sure to all the accounts, to change their passwords. So if you got one or not, its better to be safe than sorry.

The attack might be from heartbleed bug which uses Openssl and its recent victims being Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest, Tumblr.

Here is the sample mail for you.
