Hey

I thought I'd add more to this part of the forum as it is pretty empty, if it's not acceptable I apologise!

I discovered this website (it's totally legitimate, created by Troy Hunt who is a Microsoft regional director and Most Valuable Professional awardee)

I discovered that my email and password were stolen from MajorGeeks forum (ironic, an IT forum). It would be interesting to know how many people on here have had their details stolen also.

I tried with all my 3 different email accounts, and only got 1 breach. It was from an old ass tumblr account. I don't really care about it, the account was filled with cringy teenager stuff and the password was like 123456 :lol: I can't believe how stupid I used to be.

Anyways, thanks for sharing.

Is you use same password for every thing, you can easily be hacked.
