Initially you might think this issue is limited to exposure of personal information of LinkedIn users, unauthorised access to the website and potentially others. Cyberis would urge employers and security professionals to consider the potential impacts of the LinkedIn breach to their organisation.
Yesterday news reports of a LinkedIn data breach started to circulate the Internet. Given the press coverage this morning on national television, this certainly is not breaking news anymore. To clarify, the dump (currently available here - http://www.mediafire.com/?n307hutksjstow3 - amongst other places), only contains password hashes. This does not change the impact of the breach, just the exposure. It is almost certain that the attacker obtained full email addresses and other sensitive information from the site.
