    CT needs a job? What are your skills? You come to the mother land and multiple girls will lap your butthole until you cum.

    If someone there will accept a tier 1 possibly even tier 2 desktop support guy then I will have no problem flying to the mother land :)

    Yeah and now I bet the news will break that the passwords weren't encrypted. Hello PSN all over again.

    Cheers for the heads up. I've changed mine. Shame on LinkedIn for not sending out mail about it.

    Change your password just in time for it to get stolen again!

    Those passwords really should be SALTed. Hell, even we use SALTed auth.

    I feel someone should say "SALTed" again for good measure.

    Yeah a small little shop but he isn't hiring at the moment. I only know this because I happened to meet him at a spicecorps meetup. I am mainly looking in the KC area or perhaps even Lawrence.

    I downloaded the password hashes yesterday (with a bit of searching), my password hash wasn't among them, but I changed it anyway. There even were passwords like "nicholascage" "myeyes" "thebees" "burned" and such, lol, tried it on these words.

    Well looks like "Leakedin" finally confirmed the hack. Also the same Russian apparently hit the e-harmony website and stole around 1.5 million passwords in the process.
