To do today: change your LinkedIn password.

LinkedIn was hacked on 6 June 2012 and over 6.5 million passwords were published for everyone to see on a Russian website. Phishing scams have already begun using the stolen passwords as bait. Here's what this means to you:

  1. If you have a LinkedIn account, you should login and change you password immediately.
  2. Don't respond to any email that claims to be from LinkedIn that asks you to take any action from within the email. Reset your password by going directly to LinkedIn without the help of a link from an email.
