LinkedIn passwords leaked

LinkedIn confessed it had a data breach that compromised the passwords of some of its members, the social networking site said on Wednesday.
LinkedIn engineer Vicente Silveira confirmed on the site's blog that some passwords were "comprised." (
"We are continuing to investigate this situation," he said.
LinkedIn said it sent emails to members whose passwords were affected explaining how to reset them, since they are no longer valid on the site.

If you use the same password on LinkedIn as in another website or email address, I strongly recommend you changing all your passwords.
