Thank you for the link!

Yesterday, when I tried to log into Facebook, I got a message saying my password had been stolen on a different website and it compromised my Facebook password and I had to change it. It didn't tell me the website that was hacked. Then Amazon did the same thing, and they also didn't tell me what website was compromised. I was starting to get worried I had some sort of hack on my computer. Used your link and it was my gmail. I have a yahoo email for websites I don't want having my main mail, but it wasn't hacked. Luckily, my gmail password was totally unique from all of my other passwords. But I have changed everything important now.

What is intriguing is parsing the email domains. An awful lot of "dhs.gov" type emails in that list and I bet they are using the same passwords for other accounts


I thought that ATS would appreciate the fact that one of the @dhs.nyc.gov accounts uses the password "powers". That says a lot, doesn't it
