If anyone's still using a single password for more than one account,
this is your wake-up call.

Oh nice. It's not just the password on LinkedIn we need to change, we
need to change our passwords *everywhere* we have used the same email
and password combination we used on LinkedIn.

Let's come up with a super secure password and share it. That would
probably be more secure than what LinkedIn did. If you got a system with
millions of users and security to protect those user accounts, then you
should use all security options available to protect those accounts. How
hard would it have been to use a hash salt or to use advanced security
protocols that are not close to deprecation?
