How to find out if your password was stolen

To see if your password was stolen then leaked, use a third party utility from shouldichangemypassword.com and pwnedlist.com

We have no affiliation with either site, we have closely followed shouldichangemypassword.com founder's public communications closely for over three months now and trust the site. We highly recommend www.shouldichangemypassword.com.

The site stores only emails and encrypts those. They also use a secure connection (HTTPS), so it's impossible to snoop on your connection.

We tested shouldichangemypassword.com using a good email account and a known compromised email account from the 66,444 lulzsec published list. It correctly listed the password as bad.

We just started following a second site, pwnedlist.com, created by Alen Puzic, a security intelligence researcher for HP's TippingPoint DVLabs. Puzic is using an interesting concept, instead of just finding posted password lists on known hacker dumping grounds, Puzic has created spiders that crawl looking for password data.
