Linkedin password database was "hacked", 6.46 MILLION accounts compromised. if you're a subscriber to this "service", change your password to a new, unique one ASAP. don't re-use one...

google it - loads of outlets reporting. maybe they should hire a security consultant. maybe even consult their own database...just sayin'.

I had to learn of this from Paneristi. No wonder I come her a billion times more often than LinkedIn.com.
