We keep reading about how a company or a government or a celebrity or a database somewhere has been hacked. Kinda makes you wonder if you've been hacked too.
What do you do about it......how do you check?
An Australian technology professional and former security consultant, Daniel Grzelak, has built a Web site, “Should I Change My Password?, where you can check whether your information is in 13 publicly available stashes containing more than 800,000 stolen records. He promises to keep it updated as more data becomes available and helps to create a stronger password.
It's not foolproof, but it's a start. Ladies and gentlemen, start your paranoia-fueled engines.
