#1921 Breach notification website LeakedSource allegedly raided
LeakedSource, a breach notification service that exposed some of 2016’s largest data breaches, might be facing a permanent shutdown.

According to a forum post on a well-known marketplace, the owner of LeakedSource was raided earlier this week, although the exact details of any potential law enforcement action remains a mystery.
