Probably Best To Change Your LinkedIn Password Again

LinkedIn account information for over 100 million users has been offered for sale, so best to change your password asap. LinkedIn had a previous account security issue back in 2012, but this surpasses that significantly in sheer size.
Now, almost four years later, a hacker going by the name of “Peace” is offering for sale the database of 167 million accounts, including the emails, hashed and (in many cases) already cracked passwords of 117 million users.

As Motherboard reports, security researcher Troy Hunt has confirmed that at least some of the email addresses and passwords offered for sale are the same as those used by LinkedIn users at the time of the hack.
