The site was created in 2011 after a spate of significant compromises to websites resulted in thousands of sensitive login details being published online. Since then, Breach Alarm has collected over 200 million compromised email addresses and passwords, and continues to discover more every day.
“Most people don’t understand that every time you enter your password online, you’re trusting each specific website to keep it safe,” said Peter Cameron, CEO of Avalanche Technology Group. “Unfortunately, even large websites are not as good at that as we’d like to believe.”
High profile websites that have been compromised since 2011 include LinkedIn, Adobe, eHarmony, and Forbes.
