LinkedIn Passwords "Leaked"

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. According to the Beeb:

    I've changed mine just to be safe.
  2. I have changed my mine to pissword.
  3. LinkedIn's a load of piss anyway. I had my profile for one day and it was looking for money.

  4. The not-really-a-problem with the LinkedIn iPhone and iPad apps - if you tell it to sync your calendar, it copies your calendar across to your LinkedIn account. Well, duh? What does "sync" mean. Of course, if some HR twit had included a lot of sensitive documents in a meeting request, these are now on a server in Mount Vernon, New York.

    Anyway - I changed my password and then went to make sure I hadn't had a brain-fart or they hadn't****ed with my settings and enabled the calendar thing. Err, straight in on the iPhone without entering the new password - not happy.

    Mind you, I only really use it for checking where ex-colleagues are now earning their crusts.
  5. I've used it for years - never had that.
