LinkedIn Hacked- 6.4 Million Passwords Leaked Online

In case any of you have LinkedIn accounts (I have two!), apparently it was hacked by someone in Russia and 6.4 million user passwords were leaked online, for the world to see.

LinkedIn initially claimed they knew nothing about it, then in an update on ZDNET acknowledged there was a compromise. They apparently sent email notifications to those accounts that were compromised, but I'd go ahead and change your password anyway.

Am so dang tired of continuously having to change passwords because of a bunch of reprobates with nothing better to do than cause people major grief.

I don't know why they didn't bother notifying all users via email!

For more info on the ZDNET article.
