With all these data breaches, was your info included?

Following the Gawker breach at the end of last year,  a website popped up called ShouldIChangeMyPassword.com to allow people to see if their username/email address was in the latest breach. Another such website is called PwnedList.com and it has nearly 5 million accounts on file from various breaches. Its goal is to allow your average joe to visit the site, securely submit their e-mail or user name to be scanned against all of the recorded breaches on file to see if they’ve been one of the many victims out there.
