Today I am releasing the second version of my side-project pwdquery. I have spent many hours playing and manipulating the 90GB+ database, creating new scrapers, improving scripts and automating the whole process.
Remember, if you see any of your passwords in there, change immediately!
It is impressive that even now there are so many big companies with poop password storage solutions! Back in 2013 Adobe had a massive password leak, followed by Google in 2016 among many others.
Not so long ago, a compilation of 1.4 billion emails and passwords have been leaked online via torrent! When I checked that this information wasn’t available on the famous haveibeenpwned.com I decided to quickly build one where people can check if their emails have been compromised. The idea is simple, just type your email and it will check if your password is on the list. The password will be displayed with some *** so that it’s not publically available (but be careful that the leaked file doesn’t hide them!).
