No! I’m *not* asking for validation to join a security group on LinkedIn!
Apparently several million passwords have been leaked in an unsalted file, and multiple entities are working on cracking them, even as we speak. (Type?)
So, odds are “low but significant” that your LinkedIn account password may have been cracked. (Assuming you have a LinkedIn account.) So you’d better change it.
And you might think about changing the password on any other accounts you have that use the same password. (But you’re all security people, right? You’d *never* use the same password on multiple accounts …)
