A cache containing more than 700 million email addresses and passwords has been located by security researchers.

The data has been processed and loaded into the highly respected HaveIBeenPwned? website which has been collecting data from similar breaches since 2013. This site was created as a free resource for anyone to quickly assess if they may have been put at risk due to an online account of theirs having been compromised or “pwned” in a data breach.

If you are concerned that staff in your organisation might have compromised accounts or be re-using passwords which have been compromised elsewhere, we have tools which can quickly check your user directory for matching email addresses or passwords. Use the following link to request access to the tools or just give us a call on 01707 818131.
