Over 6 million user passwords of LinkedIn was cracked. The hacker posted the list of hacked passwords on a website called, and asked other peers’ help to complete crack all of them. Maybe LinkedIn should change the name to LeakedIn.

So it’s time to change your password there. But LinkedIn hasn’t told us whether our passwords are at risk or not. Neither has it given any warnings. This disappointing behavior made things worse – many users haven’t realized what happened yet!
