My password was leaked, but not cracked. Strong password with uppercase, lowercase, numbers, etc. I changed it anyway because it's only a matter of time before it is cracked.

If you do not trust the site change your LinkedIn password first, hash your old password locally on your computer, and submit it to see if your password was in the list. This is what I did.

Even if you are not in the list, you should still change your password. This may be only part of the list and LinkedIn still has not said that they have fixed the hole that allowed the passwords to be compromised. Also, do not use the same passwords on multiple websites, this is just asking for trouble.

Cheers
