    Today some whitehat on IRC decided to paste this on irc:

    And that appears to be the credentials to linodes database server that for example hosts their forums. All user logins leaked again, well played linode.

    The data on that hack seems to be from 2003.  Who cares?

    If the data was from 2003 or even 2010, the data is useless, as there was already a force password reset.
