Have I Been Pwned teams up with the FBI to collect a lot more stolen passwords

97 Views

Have I Been Pwned, the go-to site for checking if your email or password has been exposed in a data breach (and if so, how many times), has teamed up with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to bolster its database with compromised credentials in a much more timely fashion. It’s also going open source.

The HIBP site is a gem on the internet. It was started by Troy Brown, a web security consultant and a member of the Microsoft Regional Director program (he’s not a Microsoft employee), who was motivated to create the service after a security breach at Adobe in 2013 exposed login credentials for 150 million accounts. It was the largest single-breach of customer accounts at the time.
