As you all know I am a PHP Freelancer & Consultant in Bangalore & I use LinkedIn.com a lot. In fact I get most of my new clients in LinkedIn.com.

But, I do have a day job. Recently I saw a opening in LinkedIn.com & applied for it. And today I logged in to see  status & updates.Unfortunately I have found a security bug in LinkedIn.com. Below is the screenshot of the same.

LinedInBug

Exactly what Happened ? 

I had not logged out of LinkedIn in my previous visit. Today I had a new comment on a discussion I started in a group. So an e-mail was sent by LinkedIn stating the same. I wanted to “Flag as Inappropriate ” on a comment & I click on the link given below the comment. Then I was said that you have not logged In & redirected to Login Page. May be the session had expired!  But the session also shows my messages & notification even if I am logged out (according to LinkedIn). That’s a bug ? or feature ?

Finally, This is not a first time I am reporting bugs to LinkedIn. Below is the link to the post , I which I had reported a same kind of bug.
