    Professional networking site LinkedIn suffered a major security breach on June 6th, 2012 that resulted in the theft of approximately 6.5 million user passwords. The stolen data was subsequently posted on a hacker website, and while a majority of the passwords were protected with secure hash algorithms, some have been decrypted and published in plain text.
