In May 2015, the Indian motoring website known as Gaadi had 4.3 million records exposed in a data breach. The data contained usernames, email and IP addresses, genders, the city of users as well as passwords stored in both plain text and as MD5 hashes. The site was previously reported as compromised on the Vigilante.pw breached database directory.

Have I Been Pwned: Check if your email has been compromised in a data breach

I created an account years ago when I was trying to sell my Swift. God knows which common password I used on this asshole of a website which is now in public domain.

This is a good time to remember to delete your accounts on services you are no longer using. And of course, using unique passwords on all web services.
