I’ve been pwned :(

22/06/2016

Just received an email through from Amazon telling me my password has been reset. Being a suspicious type I didn’t take their email as being genuine but as there were no links it seemed more plausible than not.

So following this, I checked the very useful site “Have I been pwned?” and indeed some of my details had been made available via the MySpace breach back in 2008.

Have I been pwned?

Needless to say, passwords have been changed! Since using a password manager I’ve been far happier using distinct passwords per website, certainty going forward if there were a breach of a site I use then I can be pretty confident that any risk is limited.
