6.5M LinkedIn Passwords Leaked

Social networking site LinkedIn confirmed on Wednesday that some of the reportedly 6.5 million encrypted passwords said to be compromised were hacked and posted online on a Russian hacker website. LinkedIn, home to 150 million users, suggested the breach is limited to 10 percent of the professional network’s users—but that’s a huge number of people. The network had already received negative press this week with reports that its iOS app collects full meeting notes and details from a device’s calendar and sends them back to the company in plain text.
