LinkedIn security breach

The social networking site LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/) - a sort of Facebook for professionals - has allegedly had a possible security breach with some 6.5 million passwords leaked from the site. Many professional genealogists use the site, so a quick message for you - to be safe, it's probably best to change your password asap.

The BBC has the story at www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18338956
