    Massive Data Breach ---- Check Have I Been Pwned?

    In one of the largest public data breaches, a collection containing more than 87 gigabytes of personal information was leaked online.

    The data dump, titled "Collection #1," was hosted on the cloud service Mega, and had 772,904,991 email addresses, and 21,222,975 passwords. The treasure trove of private information was discovered by Troy Hunt, a security researcher and founder of the "Have I Been Pwned" service.

    If Forbes, Cnet, etc. are linking to it then it's likely fine. And it's only asking for your email address, they can't get anything from just an email address.

    I know I have, multiple times.

    The Chinese (and others) hack the DoD all the time to find the names and addresses of DoD employees and contractors to analyze, then observe, then approach.

    I have enough free credit monitoring to last a lifetime.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    They can also check to see if your password has been used. Just for fun I entered "Password" in the password search, and it came back with 3 million, I think.

    I can’t believe the number of individuals who use the same password for other accounts. At least make it harder to get yourself hacked!

    Well, that seals it then, can't trust you IT fuckers.

    If it wasn't broke before you guys show up, it will be by the time you leave.

    Just changed all my passwords. This is getting to be a regular thing. Not good.
