    Many sites are reporting that 6.5 million linkedin passwords were leaked online. Users have reported that their hashed passwords were on the list. So it's time to change your linked in passwords and anything else you use that same password for

    You can read about it here as well. Defiantly worth changing.

    One would think they would do this to their customers.

    The bright side is I had a message which seems legit about a job in my inbox I otherwise would not have read for quite some time ;)

    If LinkedIn was a viable concern, I'd be nervous. Its not, for me I mean, so I'm not that worried.

    It means I have no use for it. It's like an extraneous Social Network appendage.

    OK, that's fair, but why then do you feel the need to announce this?

    The number of things I have no use for are essentially infinite. But I don't comment on all of them - it's a waste of time.

    I don't own any Apple products but I saw this thread whilst Googling and I have to say, "I have no use for this site, so I'll be leaving now".

    Thank you. ;)

    Not used Linked In at all.
    So many socials, so little time.
