Security Tip

Security research firm creates website to check for compromised accounts:

Two researchers from HP Tipping Point have created a website to help determine if a username or email address has been compromised by hackers and dumped to the Internet.  The hacker term is pwned, which is a computer gaming term spoken as “owned”.  The website is a secure resource and will not give any of the account details.  It is simply a way to raise red flags so that compromised account passwords are changed, etc.  There are almost 5 million records in the database!

If anyone has a positive hit please feel free to contact me at Citizens Bank Minnesota. It is good to let your bank know, but I am also more than willing to be an advisor:
