    Have you heard that Troy Hunt's popular data breach and record exposure search engine Have I Been Pwned is going open source?


    Developed and maintained by security expert Troy Hunt, the search engine has become increasingly popular over time as the volume of reported data breaches ramped up, prompted by legislation and demands for transparency by companies suffering such a security incident. 

    When data breaches occur, financial records, sensitive corporate information, as well as personally identifiable information (PII) belonging to customers and clients, may be compromised or stolen. Data sets often appear for sale in the Dark Web for the purposes of card cloning or identity theft.
