Plans to Expand User Credential Search to Massive Database in the Works
A major announcement regarding the expansion of Leakprobe's leak database was made Friday morning, one of the largest projects in the company's short history.
Leakprobe Chief of Operations Roy Bollinger announced Friday a possible expansion of the current searchable user database to a more thorough, advanced database. Presently, the Leakprobe user data spans nearly 3 billion credentials, one of the largest leak databases on the Internet -- the new database that was announced would contain user records for upwards of 70% of all United States citizens. It would be released in the same format as the current one, though management and pricing would vary due to differences in information retrieval.
"We will have to do a complete re-work of the new database," Bollinger explained. "Searching for 50 billion records is a lot more complicated than searching through 3 billion. It is a rather large expansion, but we hope to bring this new project into operations cooperatively with the current Leakprobe model sometime before Summer." The new database, which was given the working project title "Leakprobe 2.0" will feature statistical and data retrieval tools that dwarf the current leak database of already one of the leading authorities in the industry; Leakprobe 2.0, being a different service offered, has it's own set of legal and developmental issues. "There's a lot more involved legally because of the data that can be retrieved versus just a simple saved password."
The new leak database will contain searchable records for names, addresses, birthdates, phone numbers, and email address, according but not limited to. This giant step for Leakprobe represents it's second wind since establishing itself as a data collection giant earlier in 2018. The company, worth hundreds of times it's initial value when it was first developed, is ready to step into new shoes with new competitors.
"I'm really looking forward to getting hands on with this new system," Bollinger added. "I didn't do as much as staff in the current system technically speaking, and I'd like to really get in on that technical aspect". Bollinger started as a staff writer for the data corporation, and was promoted through the ranks up to the present Chief Operations Officer since the new year.
