It is becoming apparent in the news today that 6.5 million passwords have potentially been leaked from LinkedIn. Whilst this does not represent the full LinkedIn database of 150 million plus users, it is still a sizable amount. The passwords have not been leaked in a text format, but hashed, but this does not mean that they are 'uncrackable.'
Whilst LinkedIn have yet to make an official comment, it is advised as a precautionary measure that you changed your LinkedIn Password to prevent unauthorised access.
