Creating a local version of the Pwned Passwords list

  1. Thanks for the PowerShell script, I improved it a little by using FileStream for writing instead of Add-Content. You can find my gist here: https://gist.github.com/meilon/d034ccf366d28343bf47ef59891acbaa

    I also wrote a little website like yours, by I'm more fond of Node.JS, so I wrote a small Express-based app with a little REST-API endpoint so I could implement password checks in other systems in the future.

    1. Hi meilon,
