LinkedIn Has Been Hacked

LinkedIn has been hacked and 117M user accounts are being shopped by the alleged assailants.

We should all change our passwords ASAP, but do we stop there? Since it is apparent that LI doesn't have the ability to secure our data, should we close our accounts and cease usage of LI? Should we sue them for the breach? Do they have a hacking clause? Would it matter?

Hypothetically, what if this had happened to IPVM? Would the size/scale of the org change your opinion? Would you be more or less offended knowing IPVM had been hacked vs LI?
