Check if you’re the victim of a database breach with ‘Have I Been Pwned?’

“Have I Been Pwned makes it easy for you to search for your email address amongst the hundreds of millions of accounts exposed, following breaches at Adobe, Gawker, Yahoo and others.”

This is an excellent site. It just checks to see if you’re one of the millions of folks you hear about in the news, who have been members of a major site (such as a bank, or a social network) that has been hacked.

A lot of my clients have been worried because they have been getting suddenly flooded with spam, and they can’t figure out why, after all this time, the rate has dramatically increased. Most of them have emails that end with AOL.COMYAHOO.COM, and COX.NET, and have had weak passwords for decades.
