Has your password been leaked?

When you create an account on a website, the website stores your registration details on it's SQL databases. Very few people, even within the company/website have direct access to the databases. In a naive world, the database would contain your plaintext passwords. However, since there are hackers doing SQL injection attacks to dump the database data, it's helpful to keep the password hashed/ encrypted.

If it has and I know it it's simple - I will be changing all my passwords containing parts of the leaked one. No second thoughts on that....
