LinkedIn’s broken password chain

(Thank you Steve Richardson at Digital Dynamics for this)

I know this isn’t the standard cool IT stuff that you should know & care about…but it’s something worth noting.  Looks like according to LinkedIn’s own page and twitter feed, that they were hacked this week, losing over 600,000 encrypted passwords….of which maybe a third were cracked.

So if you’re on LinkedIn, change your password.  The spam is starting to erupt there already.

In the meantime, I’m running a contest.  If you sign up for a free webex 14 day trial, I’ll put you in a raffle to win a $5 starbucks gift card (or a $5 gift card somewhere).  But you need to contact me for the link and I’ll put your name in the raffle.
