It should be mentioned that at the time of the hack (2012) LinkedIn did not have salted passwords, which means that there were no random bits in the encrypted passwords. to make them harder to break.

LeakedSource, a website that publishes leaks from data breaches, appears to have already broken most of these passwords. So he published Top 49 most used social network passwords.
