A while back, I posted a warning about Backups and Cloud Storage and how ransomware and in particular crypto viruses could destroy your cloud backed up files if they are automatically synchronised with your local files.

Over the last few years there have been some high profile security breaches where hackers have been able to steal user information and credentials from various websites and publish the details.
Would you like a way to know if your credentials have been caught up in the hack?
