Love that Ster-Kinekor gets to be ranked on it, lol.

I have 3 that had "throw-away" passwords, as in used generic password as wanted easy access but didn't care about the account.

These websites like haveibeenpawned and the likes are all bulls**t!

We all should assume that all our private information is in the hands of criminals. These are small leaks.

The real leaks are happening offline and criminals are openly selling databases of Home Affairs, SARS, Telkom, Deeds, Natis, all 4 banks, vehicle financing houses, insurance companies, cellphone companies, UIF, Pensioners and many many more.

How to check if your data was stolen in recent leaks and breaches

Over the past year, there have been several data breaches and leaks which affected millions of South Africans.

Two such incidents were the “Master Deeds” leak almost a year ago, and the traffic fine payments platform database leak in May.
Try these two urls on for size:

SARS' Flashy IT expert surely must know what she is doing with her huge monthly salary.

Lol. You can cut out the white space to the left and right as well.

You have much skill at using the snipping tool. ;)
