I truly will like to know, why is called salt?

In this one Cain and Abel

The creator of the software does not even give a reason for choosing that peculiar name, maybe it does not have any importance or maybe it does, but I have not found any information in the subject and I would like to know

I did change my password when the news first came out. If my account did get compromised the only thing the hacker could do is spam my connections with an onslaught of CRAP. Thankfully news spreads quickly!

I gave Linkedin a Poor WOT rating for Privacy because of the Password issues and Unsatisfactory in all other areas. My category was "Bad Customer Experience." This is an article I found:

IMO, it is hard to know when the site will be safe because of these issues.

Here is the scorecard:
