Data Leaks

Access data is frequently stolen from web services by attackers, or found out using spyware. It can often land in the public domain and can thus be viewed by anyone. Use this service to check whether and, if so, when your data turned up in a data pool.

Network Check

A network check checks:

Whether the IP address (address element on the internet) of the internet access you are using has tried at any point in the last few days to connect to a server that is known to be infected. This indicates that a device connected to the network will also be infected.

That the router (the device that allows you to access the internet) cannot be used to reach any services which might pose a potential security risk. This could be used for attackers to take control of the device.


Software Check

Obsolete software often contains gaps in security which can be exploited by attackers. With Software Check, you can see whether or not the browser you are using is up to date. Alternatively, you can install a program which reviews operating system updates and other software you have installed.

Software Check is provided by Qualys.
