Follow up to June 6, 2012 posting, LinkedIn Member Passwords Compromised, this update via the LinkedIn Blog: An Update On Taking Steps To Protect Our Members, June 9, 2012: “…In this post, we want to address questions weve been receiving and share what weve learned so far about the incident, how weve responded, and what were doing to protect our members going forward. First, its important to know that compromised passwords were not published with corresponding email logins. At the time they were initially published, the vast majority of those passwords remained hashed, i.e. encoded, but unfortunately a subset of the passwords was decoded. Again, we are not aware of any member information being published at any time in connection with the list of stolen passwords. The only information published was the passwords themselves.”
