Troy Hunt: I Have Been Pwned for Sale

The largest file of data breaches on the Internet, Have I Been Pwned, is sold by the owner of Troy Hunt.

Troy Hunt, its founder ς he said the sale on Tuesday in a blog post. Hunt says it's time to make Have I Been Pwned part of something bigger and more organized.

"To date, every line of code, and every broken file has been edited by me alone. "There is no HIBP group, there is a guy who keeps this whole thing alive," Hunt said.

“It's time for HIBP to grow up. The time has come for it to be a one-person site that does what it can to χρόνο του, σε μια who can finance it and will make it better than I could ever do it myself."

Με τα χρόνια το Have I Been Pwned έχει καταστεί ένας τεράστιος αποθηκευτικός χώρος για παραβιάσεις δεδομένων στο διαδίκτυο. Εκεί μπορείτε να αναζητήσετε την διεύθυνση του ηλεκτρονικού σας ταχυδρομείου τους για να δείτε αν έχει διαρρεύσει σε κάποια data. It's now a service where you can sign up to be notified if your account is hacked.

It is probably the most useful, free cyber service of its kind.

Troy Hunt said it had already had informal talks with some companies that may be interested in buying the service, and said it had hired a financial advisory firm, KPMG, to look for a buyer.

In the same post Troy Hunt mentioned some amazing numbers that explain how big Have I Been Pwned has become: 8 billion files, nearly 3 million people have signed up to receive , and 7 million breach emails have been sent. The web receives 150.000 unique visitors on a normal day, and 10 million on days when a new breach is discovered.

Regardless of who buys the service, Hunt is asking for some commitments for the future of the site. 

Searches should remain free for all users, the platform should be expanded and developed and finally, it wants to stay on board as an employee with some capacity.
