ALERT: LinkedIn, Twitter Tainted by Gawker Hack

Gawker got hacked. Twitter and LinkedIn were compromised. Is your online identity safe?

Is it too coincidental to be a coincidence? When I checked my email this morning, I found a message from LinkedIn telling me that my account had been disabled temporarily – and to change my password. This comes the morning after Gawker admitted to being hacked, requiring 1.5 million users to change their passwords.
