Password Leaked warning
« on: November 09, 2017, 06:56:53 PM »
I got a warning about a password leak from about 20 sites. I got 20 odd pop ups one after another and then a warning that one of my passwords had been compromised on one site. It showed in Password Manager and then disappeared and I cannot find anything about the report now. Does anyone know where I can re-find that information or is there a page for subscribers somewhere that shows the threats and which sites have suffered leaks / attacks?

Cheers,

Simon

I just  got the same message-'breached 3rd party service epygi.com urgently change password. I did and then when I had to reboot the new password (unrelated to any other password) wouldn't work but the old one did. (masterpassword)   kdlkaren

You can hit Analyze passwords in passwords list in avast window (Section Privacy->Passwords). Note that if you have some prompt shown (install extension or pending browser deletion or device confirmation) you need to resolve those before you can perform the analysis.

Sounds to me like you have changed password in our program only.
You have to do it primarily on the website, following procedure for password change for the service (epygi.com in your case).
Then our browser extension should catch the updated value and update the record, lately on next login attempt our browser extension should prompt you with update dialog of login you have stored with us.
