Till now Linode issued a statement that:

Dear Linode customer,

Linode administrators have discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Linode network.  This activity appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access the account of one of our customers.  This customer is aware of this activity and we have determined its extent and impact.  We have found no evidence that any Linode data of any other customer was accessed.  In addition, we have found no evidence that payment information of any customer was accessed.


In the statement Linode is just saying about the password reset and telling their customers that their data is safe with them but after the screenshot and the Linode user’s post it tell us another story.
