    This reminds me of the movie hackers.

    Is it possible the authors or site isn’t super familiar with cyber security, or the research side?

    I’m mean, it’s cyber news, but how is this much different from have I been pwnd?

    An I missing something, or was this just a click bait title to scare people?

    Edit: so if this was for legit purposes, it should have been secured, otherwise it just contributes it assists with threat actors. I’m guessing this is why the community is upset.

      haveibeenpwned does not publish data. They provide a service of checking whether you are part of breached data. They operate as a trustworthy middleman without disclosure or sharing of data to third parties.

      If you mean they also collect data like that, then yes. But what they do with it is very different from a leak.
