Public Service Announcement:
On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, LinkedIn announced that an additional set of data from their users has been released which claims to be the email address and hashed password combinations for more than 100 million LinkedIn users. This data breach is a result of the same attack LinkedIn faced in 2012.
In 2012, LinkedIn worked with the affected users to invalidate their passwords and create new ones. They also encouraged all LinkedIn users to change their password.
If you did not change your LinkedIn password after the 2012 hack, you REALLY need to do it now.
