Are there any good plugins to help fix broken links?

Google Webmaster Tools and a few site scans are turning up some 404s and broken links on a company's 12+ year old Wordpress blog. Lots of legacy content that needs cleaning - any good plugins to automate this, or is this best served as a manual seek-and-destroy type of exercise?

hm.. there should be firefox or chrome add on that check links on a given site and report back any that are not valid. (i forgot what the plugin is called, but i had one 5 years go so there must be better one now!)
