LinkedIn has dicovered salting

You've heard of the recent LinkedIn leak of hashed passwords, right?

Well, this is what they say on their blog:

Finally, we’ve enhanced our security measures through an additional layer of technical protection know as “salting” to better secure your information.

LinkedIn, your passwords weren't salted, really?

And recently they sent me an email saying my hashed password is on a hacker forum.

  1. No they weren't. Apparently LinkedIn doesn't have either CIO or CISO executive responsible for overseeing information security.
