Have I Been Pwned?

So I have been reading the news about all these data breaches happening lately and remembered this cool project by Troy Hunt called ‘Have I Been Pwned’. You can go to projects website at https://haveibeenpwned.com and enter your email address to see if it shows up as hacked on his database which is made of billions of usernames and passwords of people that have been hacked on different sites and platforms.

First time I checked my email it showed up as compromised and I found my old password together with other 5 million passwords in a text file hosted online. Good thing it was my old password and that I change my passwords regularly.
