Subject: Complete Linkedin breach from 2012 up for sale

Finally (?), the full extent of the 2012 breach appears online. 117
million emails + unsalted sha-1 up for sale.

Compared to the Rockyou list I would consider this dataset a lot more
useful for research purposes. Just the ability to do a non-case
substring search of names / emails in the passwords is very tempting,
and even in 2012 Linkedin had a stricter password policy than that of
the Rockyou leak.
