LinkedIn Investigating Reports of Stolen Passwords

LONDON (AP) -- Business social network LinkedIn is confirming reports that some of its users' passwords have been stolen and leaked onto the Internet.

The company said in a blog post Wednesday that some of the more than six million passwords that were compromised correspond to LinkedIn accounts. It did not say how many.

LinkedIn has a lot of information on its more than 160 million members, including potentially confidential information related to jobs being sought.
