Leakprobe Expands to 2.5 Billion Searchable Leaked Database
New data available in plain-text format to the general public
The Leakprobe database, which boasted over 1 billion user accounts according to social media last week, offers an API to search the collection for free, and can be filtered by username or email address associated with accounts. Facilitating the addition and citing Leakprobe's mission to provide a larger amount of data to Internet users, CEO Ben Carr stated the advantages of doubling the size of the company's database.
"Even though the database size has doubled," states CEO Ben Carr, "we've updated our management tools so that the search time for queries is not affected. There's been no change in search time since adding the new accounts."
Leakprobe's new plans are to expand to the next billion number mark, with 3 billion or more user accounts for users to search. Their mission statement remains tobuild the largest leaked passwords database available to the general public, release analyses of user password choices, and provide quick access to cracking password hashes.
