You can go to leakedin.org to check if your password was leaked. It doesn't send your password anywhere, just checks the hash.
How do you know leakedin.org is legit?
It could be just a honeytrap set up by the guy who stole the passwords in the first place. Sure, you don't give any other info, but the list of passwords can be then used later to use in brute force methods.
If you are worried, you should just change your passwords.
the LinkedIn app crashes every time I try to access it this afternoon?
I changed mine anyway, adding to the ever-lengthening list of passwords that I use on a daily basis. I am pretty sure that it will get to a point where I am trying to log into a site like LinkedIn with the login information I use for our customer data system. Worse, I am afraid I'll be successful doing that...
Uncofirmed blogger brags he hacked the passowrds and no confirmation from Linkedin yet? I'll wait to panic.
The lack of confirmation from them should not be mistaken for assurance.
Also there is some question as to whether you should actually change your password yet, because if LinkedIn's system is still vulnerable, changing your password is just going to give your new password to the hax0rz.
I was a lucky winner in today's sweepstakes!
Oh man, I hope no one gets a hold of my password. I'll never be able to think of something as clever as "1234" if I have to change it!
LinkedIn passwords are 6 digits.
How stupid do you think I am? I'm not about to give away my entire password. There's no way you'd ever guess the last two digits.
and use a password management system like KeePassX.
Oh noes, some pinko hax0rz might write a positive recommendation for this guy I hate at work. Fight back.... WOLVERINES!!!!
...are "goblue" followed by some digits.
incuding linkecin and this account....
I'm sure that's similar to 90% of the people on this board.
Crap, my password is the same one I have on my luggage!
I've never understood this kind of thing. What does the hacker get out of leaking these passwords? Is it all just a power trip? So many questions..
the hacker can have my LinkedIn. it might have seen even less action than my MySpace page, and I don't even have one of doze.
