Originally posted on Software Engineering Daily
When you hear about massive data breaches like the recent ones from LinkedIn, MySpace, or Ashley Madison, how can you find out whether your own data was compromised?
Troy Hunt created the website HaveIBeenPwned.com to answer this question. When a major data breach occurs, Troy acquires a copy of the stolen data and provides a safe way for individuals to check if their credentials have been stolen.
Troy is an expert on data breaches, and he works as a regional director at Microsoft. Our conversation explores passwords, IoT security, Stuxnet, and the dark, bizarre world of data breaches.
