Information Security Awareness: Have You Been Pwned?

Given the constant barrage of information about account and data breaches, it’s a good idea to check on your accounts to see if they’ve been "pwned." Pwned is a corruption of the word “owned.”  To see if your account is associated with a list of hacked websites, visit haveibeenpwned.com and type in your e-mail account (i.e., yourname@buffalostate.edu). You can do this for all your accounts. If you've been pwned, change your password, or delete your account from the service. Remember, this is why we don't use the same password for more than one account.
