LinkedIn launched itself back into the limelight with yesterday's massive user account security breach. Over 6 million unsalted SHA-1 password hashes were posted online, triggering an orgy of consternation, smugness, and schadenfreude across the geek boards. It was barely a year and a half ago that LinkedIn was in the press because of leaked password issues (not their fault)--one would have thought that they would have spent a little time auditing their security procedures. Now Last.fm is reporting their own leak just 24 hours later.
