Since hacking seems to be part of everyday now, there has never been a real way to check if your email account has been hacked – until today. A Australian technology professional and former security consultant, Daniel Grzelakhas has built a Web site ( ShouldIChangeMyPassword.com) which allows people to check if their email accounts have been compromised.
To check whether your Password is hacked, go to ShouldIChangeMyPassword.com and type in your e-mail address — he promises that he will not capture or store it. If it’s found, you will be told how many times and get tips for creating strong passwords and using them safely.
The website uses a number of sources to search through and if it finds a match, it will let you know. Grzelak has integrated around 800,000 email addresses into the website, which where taken from 13 databases exposed by Lulzsec. He also has plans to update his site with more databases.
