    Have I Been Pwned has become a popular tool to find out whether or not you have been involved in a data breach, and after starting life as a one-man-band project, may soon be on the acquisition books.

    The data breach search engine is the brainchild and life's work of Troy Hunt, an acclaimed cybersecurity expert.

    The HIBP website was launched in 2013 following a massive data breach at Adobe which led to the exposure of over 150 million user records and was designed to allow non-technical people to type in their email address and easily find out if their information was leaked or exposed in a security incident.
