  1. Enable search and notifications for email addresses using the "+" syntax

    A lot of people use a syntax such as troyhunt+foo@hotmail.com where foo is a unique identifier for the site. They do this so that if they begin getting spammed, they can identify the source their email came from.

    At the moment, HIBP treats this is a totally unique email address so if I've search for the parent email address without the "+" syntax, it won't be found. This idea is to ensure that searches and notifications recognise the syntax and return addresses that are logically still the same account.

    One thing HIBP would also need to do is specify which…

    • Fix multi-domain search results

      Apparently, multi-domain search result for breached email account sets are broken. Maybe only for large result sets?
      I did a multi-domain search after the avectis breach notification with over 10.000 of our company and customer emails affected. However, the "Breached email accounts" tab in the excel format was empty. The HTML did not load (result set to big) and the JSON also only included "{"BreachSearchResults":null, ..."
      Can you check this please?

      • Add support for NTLM(MD4) hashes to enable Active Directory auditing

        I wanted to use the list to check existing Active Directory (AD) passwords against this wonderful HIBP list, but the problem is that neither the API nor the offline list support MD4 hashes (AKA NT one-way function or NTLM hash) that are stored in AD databases (together with salted SHA1 and MD5, which therefore cannot be precomputed).

        Would it please be possible to also add support for this (weaker) type of hashes? It would be great to have them available at least through the API and ideally also in a downloadable form.

        • The ability to report data breaches

          In many cases of small businesses, customers know about problems through internal emails much faster than large media. So there should be the possibility to report data breaches with sources. Perhaps with a form and in addition you can forward internal e-mails directly.

            Add itsecuity@domain.com as one of the contacting addresses for a domain search as this is a common address these days.

            • Make domain notification more salient

              TL;DR: Make domain-level notification (1) more obvious to find and (2) more salient in the registration form.

              # Feature not advertised in top bar labels

              * "Home" promises e-mail one-time search,
              * "Notify me" promises e-mail notification, *not* registration
              * "Domain search" promises, well, one-time domain search.

              I suggest you add either a separate label on top bar with a separate form. Or change existing "Domain search" into "Domain search+notification" (yes, it's longer, so see other suggestion below).

              # Feature not recognizable when found

              On https://haveibeenpwned.com/DomainSearch there is only one salient title "Domain search / Search for pwned accounts across…

              • Add an API endpoint that returns a rate limited response

                This would allow easy testing of code to properly handle a rate limit, without having developers intentionally exceed the rate limit in order to test.

                https://api.pwnedpasswords.com/rate-limited/backoff
                would return a 429 response with a Retry-After header with a a value = backoff. The backoff parameter is optional and if omitted you would return the default backoff seconds (2).

                It is unclear whether the v2 api is rate limited. You state when describing the V2 API that it is not, but the section regarding rate limiting in the API docs does explicitly state that it doesn't apply to the V2 API. This…

                • Include the affected email address in the API json structure as well.

                  Ingesting in Splunk becomes easier when the unique account is included in the API json data structure. Otherwise you cannot tell these individual disclosures apart.

                  • Add domain search capability to the API functions

                    I've been subscribing to the alerts for breaches related to our corporate domain, which is fantastic, but now that we have Splunk in house, I was hoping to connect directly to the API from a forwarder.

                    • Indicate if the same credentials have appeared in another breach

                      Nice, now I know that my mail-address was included in the Exploit.In and Adobe breach. But the Exploit.In breach does not hint any clue whether we talk about the same service (=Adobe) or not. I can understand that you cannot mail me a password. After all you don't know me. I might as well be an imposter. But it would be cool if you could internally setup your database such that it outputs whether the password in an amalgamated-list-breach that did not specify a service like Exploit.In was identical to the one in another breach like the Adobe breach. That…

                        • add a timeline of breaches

                          It would be great to see a timeline of breaches, and a graph of the total accounts compromised (maybe separately showing the date of breach and when it was discovered/reported). I know that this year has seen a few big breaches disclosed, thanks Yahoo & MySpace, although they date back somewhat.

                          • Add wildcard support for spamgourmet addresses

                            Spamgourmet.com allows a user to create disposable email addresses on the fly. That way a unique email address can be used for each web site you sign up for. The structure of an address is identifier[.##].username@spamgourmet.com, where the identifier can change per site and [.##] is an optional max number of emails you want to receive. Because a different address is used for each site it is currently impossible to query HIBP for breaches of all sub-addresses, like *.username@spamgourmet.com. Allowing wildcard search and notification for spamgourmet addresses (or its many alias domains) would enable users to…

                            • Allow a family member to accept sending notification to someone else.

                              For example, my parents wouldn't know what to d with this, but I'd like to add them with the option to report to me when they are compromised so I can fix it for them. Ideally, I'd add their emails and they would receive a notice to accept or deny, if they accept I get alerts on them in the future. Can optionally leave sensitive items out of report. I could also see this as helpful for consultants but maybe you could sell that. I'd actually pay for it for my parents too.

                                  • Domain wide search results - Refined export of data

                                    It would be great to refine the export data for domain wide searches.

                                    Something i would like to do is notify the users of new breaches. If i run the report periodically, i can easily compare the results and for any differences script a personalised mailout informing my users of such exploit.

                                    Cheers,
                                    Ivan

                                    • Fix captcha puzzle for IE11 users

                                      Currently the buttons at the bottom of the "check all images that have XXX" popup don't work on IE11. Can't Verify, refresh, get help, etc. Makes notifications impossible if the puzzle appears.

                                      • Add a "Suspended" account button

                                        I have been reported on 3 accounts that Tumblr accounts have been breached, one of them was in fact suspended for unknown reasons.

                                        • CSO need terms to be able to use HIBP in their company.

                                          We have integrated HIBP api in some of our security tools in our company in order to estimate the probability of one of our client getting hacked if his email appears in many breaches.

                                          We beta tested it, but our legal staff pointed out that we needed terms on the website to be able to use it, as the fact you only tell that you don't collect and store email that are searched (we do trust you but legal team don't work on trust :p) is not enough.

                                          we got in touch with the french "national comity for IT liberty"…
