LinkedIn Offices

When you heard about some 6.5-million of LinkedIn’s password’s being leaked, you may have felt a twinge of panic (even if you hadn’t been on there in months).

Some opportunistic developers have built a tool called LeakedIn, which allows you to to check if your password was one of the ones compromised.

All you do is feed in your password, which the tool hashes with JavaScript. It looks legit enough but, as always, you use it at your own risk.

Whether you password comes out clean (like mine) or compromised, it’s still probably a good idea to go and change it as soon as possible.
