Hi All,

I have been asked to look into the following website and see if it is trustworthy source and also if we should use it in our organization?  Has anybody used this in their organization or a similar tool?  Is it reliable?

https://haveibeenpwned.com/

Any information offered would be helpful.

Thank you

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have used similar tools - but not this specific site.  I have used https://isleaked.com/ in the past.  When I did, I did not receive a deluge of SPAM e-mail as a result, so I was happpy :)

For you, as a test - create a mailbox like "sugardaddy@yourcompany.com", and enter that as the e-mail address it needs to search for - it will (hopefully) not find it in the database, but then you can monitor the mailbox to see if spam starts.

As a final note - I did a whois check on the domain in question, and saw that the registrant has not opted to use privacy on their domain.  This is generally a good thing - it shows a level of trust.  People who cannot be trusted usually hide behind anonymisers or domain privacy.  Of course, this is no guarantee that the data is legitimate - but it's still a good sign.
