It is being widely reported today that password information from the social network site LinkedIn has been compromised. It is currently unclear at whether matching username information (email addresses) has also been compromised.

I STRONGLY recommend that LinkedIn users change their passwords as soon as possible. And if you are in the habit of using the same password on multiple web sites, many of which use an email address as a username, then I would recommend that you change your password on those other sites also.
