Recently came across BitCrime ian elite Eastern European cyber security lab, located in Sofia (Bulgaria), that collects and analyzes big data from the cyber underground and open sources, thus allowing for cross checking. Their data collection uses unique proprietary techniques, many automated, which allows them to correlate and produce a clear global image of anything they investigate.
 
Their process is fed into an integrated platform, where trends are easily identified, thus providing data for both reactive and preemptive security models.

 

They claim to understand the infiltrated underground and can properly interpret not only data and intelligence, but also the motivations behind an attack.

 

Their latest solution is pitchfork bitcrime a platform that allows you to check if your password has been breached online in any database

I'm sorry though, I can't help you as I am not all that knowledgeable on this topic, but can tell you that Bulgarian cyber-security firms are usually run by well-informed and thoughtful people who do their job just right.:)

I am always skeptical of such claims, until it is supported by real-world data and independent review.

 

This site will tell you (free of charge) whether your email address or user name has been pwned.

I know about that one to, pitchfork bitcrime is equally free as well, more accurately you can check just your password instead as well

I for one would never enter any of my passwords into anything but the associated account.

What if they are collecting passphrases and associated IP's. Think what you could do scares me and I am useless on a pc linux or windows specially a new company that not much is known. I'd always edge on the side of caution till more is known and a company has proven to be trustworthy.

But why would they limit the searches to 5 per day at maximum, then? Sounds counter-productive if they were a criminal organization. Or maybe that's what they want us to think...

I'm not saying they are criminal just new and as yet unproven either way. I've known a seemingly legit company to offer things and all along they were stealing and collecting the data for use in another criminal enterprise which they got caught for and went to the slammer. So all I'm saying is be careful that's all anything new treat with care.

Actually, that doesn't seem to be too valuable, as the password needs to be paired with a user id.

 

If I had a really bad password such as 123456789, there could be millions of results.

 

However, checking a user id like "puppymonkeybaby07172017" would narrow down the results.

 

And as mentioned, I would not provide both.

 

 

Are you associated with this company?

I dunno.. I'm American.. to me it sounds like some system set up through Parliament.  Here in the US, the security firms are really rare.  Um.  Most online services have this log system.  Yeah.  There are logging mechanisms and I would not trust what a third party says.  Security cannot always be trusted.
