“Collection #1” – Data Breach

As you might have already read in the news, personal data (email-addresses, passwords,…) has been published and sold on the internet – again.

More information on where the data comes from and what exactly is part of the “Collection #1”, can be found in Troy Hunt’s article.

Important
Never (ever) use a password for more than one account! Use Password Managers like KeePass.

Passwords of this collection will go into our Hack-Check service, please test your passwords from time to time!

It might also be a good idea to visit ‘;–have i been pwned?. This services allows you to check if your email addresses are part of such data collections – and you can even subscribe to get informed if your email is found in any future data.
