There have been countless data breaches over the last few years, but this one is easily the biggest of them all. "Collection #1" is the largest data breach by volume in history, with around 773 million emails and 22 million passwords having been stolen and released.
Yikes. So how do you know if yours is one of them?
Well, the breach was first reported by a guy who runs the site Have I Been Pwned. On this site, you can actually enter your email to find out whether or not it was hacked, and whether your password is available. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE THEM YOUR PASSWORD.
UPDATE: Ok, so I just tried it myself and luckily all of the emails I have (all 2 of them) have not been breached. However, I did try my old email I remembered, from like 2003, and that one had been hacked! Whoever had it after me might not be in good shape.
