Something weird about the site where you check your email address. I checked email addresses of (retirees) people that left the company >8 years ago and it returns "you've been pwned". I am skeptical.

Why? It just means that their e-mail addresses were leaked at some point during its existence on other websites where they e.g. subscribed to something - why skeptical?

One of my email addresses:


ViewFines: In May 2018, the South African website for viewing traffic fines online known as ViewFines suffered a data breach. Over 934k records containing 778k unique email addresses were exposed and included names, phone numbers, government issued IDs and passwords stored in plain text.
Compromised data: Email addresses, Government issued IDs, Names, Passwords, Phone numbers

Who else finds it a little disturbing that Troy's site leaks data about services you're subscribed to? Anyone can enter any email address and see what you've subbed to if you've been pwned.
