Just an FYI

A user in a Russian forum is claiming to have hacked LinkedIn to the tune of almost 6.5 million account details. The user uploaded 6,458,020 hashed passwords, but no usernames. It’s not clear if they managed to download the usernames, but it’s likely that both have been downloaded.

Ugh, I know, but this is what you get for having a LinkedIn account, people. Now stop sending me invitations to join for the love of God!
