Do you use the same password across sites?

In 2012, LinkedIn had a security breach resulting in user credentials being stolen. In the last few days the media has reported a high volume of Twitter and Facebook accounts being compromised. In addition to this services such as TeamViewer appear to be under attack.

You can search this online database to see if your email address is found in the leak. If you reuse your password across sites and your details have been leaked, you'll definitely want to change said password.
