Is this ACTUALLY true? Probably not, and if some russian dude has my password..... oh well, he's managed to aquire my work history and a few prospecting messages. Have fun with that Igor ;o) Much ado about nothing again I fear :D
+Mike Seymour The problem is that a lot of people still use the same username and password for multiple services and even for important online accounts like their bank account. Yes, I agree, that's a bad move.
+Kelly Stanonik Those who posted the encrypted passwords were just asking for help cracking them. They likely have held the email addresses themselves. Worst case, they can add the passwords to a dictionary used to drive a dictionary attack, avoiding the brute force method, which is usually too time consuming.
