LinkedIn password list has been leaked.
http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2012/06/06/millions-of-linkedin-passwords-reportedly-leaked-take-action-now/

And LinkedIn just confirmed some breach:
http://blog.linkedin.com/2012/06/06/linkedin-member-passwords-compromised/

Really a stupid thing of them to use only an unsalted hash for passwords
here.... *shiver running down my spine*

Maybe a good time for everybody to do the regular password change a bit
ahead of schedule...
(and if you "re-"used the LinkedIn password for another site as well, you
should change the passwords to all these sites as well....)

Best regards, Tobias
