As you all probably heard, there were some stolen passwords from Linkedin this morning (announcement). A simple way to check if your password belongs to the ones stolen is by using the following script:
if [ ! -f 'combo_not.txt' ]
if [ ! -f 'combo_not.zip' ]
echo "Downloading the list of sha1s"
mine=$(echo -n "$1" | sha1sum | cut -d' ' -f1);
echo "checking "$mine
echo " and "$mine0
grep -e $mine -e $mine0 combo_not.txt
chmod +x on the script and then run it placing a space in front, so that the command does not appear in the history of commands.
$ ./check.sh 123456
PS. Yes, someone is using the password 123456!
