I share Jan-Piet's and Marco's concerns:

1) ".com" corrupted? Really? I would prefer to learn it from
Verisign. You mean that Network Solutions broke something again? Not
the same thing as a ".com corruption".

2) Your mail is not authentified. I see nothing on LinkedIn's Web

3) There are no technical details (I can read The Register
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/06/20/linkedin_dns_hijacked/> or
but there are little details.
