Do you use LinkedIn? Millions of users have had their passwords posted online, so probably best to change yours.
It was confirmed today in a blog post by Vicente Silveira on social networking site LinkedIn with the following statement "Members that have accounts associated with the compromised passwords will notice that their LinkedIn account password is no longer valid."

Do you use the same password on every site?
If you do, Div Party suggests you check out a little browser plugin called Lastpass. Lastpass auto-generates a new password for every website that you sign up to. It then remembers the passwords in a vault and when you go back to the website, it auto-fills the username and password fields. So essentially, you only need one password to access all of them. It's a great way to have mutilple passwords, without having to remember them all. Check it out here.
