Six Million LinkedIn Passwords ‘Leaked’

June 6, 2012 § 2 Comments

It appears that the security of more than six million LinkedIn accounts has been compromised. It is recommended that LinkedIn users change their passwords and the passwords of other sites using the same password.

The passwords have been posted on the Internet in encrypted form but it would seem that some have already been cracked.

The following advice is taken from the BBC report breaking the news.

What to do

Security experts have advised users to change their passwords on LinkedIn. Here’s how:

  1. Visit, and log-in with your details
  2. Once logged-in, hover over your name in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and select ‘Settings’ from the menu
  3. You may be asked to log-in again at this point
  4. On the next screen, click the ‘Account’ button which is near the bottom of the page
  5. Under the ‘Email & Password’ heading, you will find a link to change your password

If you use the same password on other sites, be sure to change those too.

Mark Walford, potter, signing one of his platesI’ve updated Mark Walford’s Photo Gallery with many new pictures of his work.

Mark is very talented and the great variety of different pieces and different finishes is a joy to behold.

Of course the real thing is so much better than a photo could hope to portray, even so I’ve enjoyed looking at these pictures and I hope you do too.
