5 Million Gmail Passwords Leaked, Google Says No Evidence Of Compromise

Slashdot reports that 5 million Gmail accounts have been leaked. According to Google their platform has not been compromised. In the meantime, I’ve published a small utility to check if your email address is in the list of compromised accounts. I’m using the database published in the Slashdot comments, which does not contain the alleged passwords (only the email addresses).

The link is:

REMOVED — UPDATE: Enough time has passed, so I’ve removed this page and the database.

If you don’t trust the tool thinking I may be collecting email addresses (I don’t blame you BTW) you can check for yourself downloading that file and doing a grep on your email address like this:

ngranek@trantor:~/Downloads$ grep bigjocker google_5000000.txt
