New Service "PitchFork" Confirms Breached Passwords
Today Insedia.com has opened a database for consumers to check to see if their passwords and their variations have been found in the cyberspace. This FREE service allows consumers the ability to confirm or validate if one of the billions of records from hacked sites has possibly exposed their password. A simple check can provide the consumer information to re-enforce their passwords or take action if they are a victim of identity theft.
PitchFork is a collection of already compromised databases-intercepted from underground sources. By consolidating this "dark data", it’s possible to find the one account, that one needle, in a haystack. These needles are the seeds of identity theft and cybercrime.
Today’s consumer has a right to know what site was hacked. The days of your bank replacing your credit card and NOT telling you where your personal information was hacked are numbered. Consumer’s need all relevant real time information to not only protect themselves, but also to form the first line of defense against cyber thieves.
Insedia feels if you know where your information may have been breached, it can empower you to take action. Most identity theft services are "reactive," helping you clean up the mess after the fact. If you know the possible sources of how your personal information got out in the wild, you can take an "active defense" against your violation.
- Take legal action against the site that exposed you
- Collect on identity theft insurance
- Assist law enforcement in criminal investigations to find the thief
- Use the information to battle credit bureaus
- Strengthen your own personal security
- Peace of mind that you are not just a victim
"The consumer should not be the last to know about the source of identity theft", states Dan Clements, Compassionate Technologist for Insedia. "In fact, armed with more detection and breach information, today’s more technical consumers become a deputized cyber army, able to quickly assist banks and law enforcement to unearth the seeds of cybercrime and identity theft.”
