I read today that the passwords of some 6 million people were hacked (i.e. stolen) by someone in Russia from the Internet giant LinkedIn yesterday. Time will tell if this leak proves problematic or not but it would probably be wise to change your password if you're a user of that particular application and whilst you're there give it a quick scrub to make sure there's no ultra-sensitive personal data that you'd rather not share on it. Some people could find that their "network" is a little larger than they expected this morning.
