    LinkedIn, is still being evasive on the issue, but this story from krebsonsecurity.com seems to confirm the breach based on reports from users who have found their passwords in the list posted online.

    You might also enjoy this post on ZDNet, as it is an interesting insight into LinkedIn's confused and apparently directionless security policy. Personally, I'm starting to think that this may the norm for most online organizations and businesses.

    Glad I never signed up for it, but I think people can volunteer you for it. I keep getting e-mails to check my status and I remember getting a notice long ago that a name I know invited me to linked in and since then I got updates about my "linked in status" regarding updates about people I know and their activities.
    One Script to rule them all.
    One Script to find them.
    One Script to bring them all,
    and clean up after itself.

    From what I hear it was only password hashes but not associated emails.
    The hash of my password isn't on the list.

    While that appears to be true, that's one of those points where LinkedIn appears to be somewhat vague. It's certainly quite possible that no seriously sensitive information has been leaked. Still, here's something to think about: how many similar breeches have turned out to be much less serious than first thought?
