LinkedIn Password Dump Verified


As you might imagine we couldn’t contain ourselves this morning when we heard of the LinkedIn compromise and had to go searching for the dump.

We were able to get our hands on a copy of the password hashes, totaling 6,500,000 unique passwords. From that we were able to see that about 2,000,000 had been cracked and as of a few minutes we’re close to 200,00 of our own cracks. We verified the dump by searching for known unique passwords only used by the individual on LinkedIn.

Here is a quick look at some of the worst passwords found:

This is just another example of why every security presentation should include a slide on secure passwords. Here is an example of real users using very uncreative passwords and how easy they are.
