But i wonder if entering email address on the one hcp posted would be good or not because wouldn't they record any email address typed in though even though it says it won't?
That is a possibility, yes. No one can tell you that with certainty. Only the owner of the site can, and he can lie about it. If you think your data has been leeked, make a search to see what exactly is out there. But don't do it just to cure your curiosity. 

I received targeting phishing emails a while back... the ones where it say we see your ledger has been logged in russia or some country like that etc.
That's different. Spam mails like that were sent even before the Ledger hack. Have you received the type of emails described in this thread? The ones telling you your assets are at risk, and you need to download a new version of the LL software?



I don't believe i received that email of your assets are at risk and you need to download new version of ledger live.... i dont believe so but i will check.


But if you receive that, very good chance the other things are leaked then right?

Not necessarily... like I said, my partner who has never been to any crypto related site ever gets "Warnings" that her crypto wallet is at risk. With cryptocurrency getting a lot more mainstream, the spammers are, as always, just playing a numbers game...

Hell, I get warnings that my <insert exchange/service that I have never used> account is blocked and I need to click on this link to fix etc.

Granted, getting the emails from the leaks isn't particular difficult... all the data is out there... and targeting those emails is likely going to get "better" results for a scammer than blindly emailing random email addresses... but those types of emails are not exclusive to the emails in the leaked data.

What i do know is my email when i put it on that site of haveibeenpwned.com does show yes though.


But of course im not sure putting my ledger email in that site is thus safe etc.


So i guess if you didn't get that specific email message of you need to download ledger live and update it... then most likely your are fine?  Now anyone here get any spam to phone number though?  Since its been said phone number could be leaked?

If it showed "Oh no — pwned!" then most probably your email was used to register on some websites that has been breached before and was recorded on haveibeenpwned database or sources.

What you should avoid is clicking any links sent to you, especially messages on your spam folder.

You would have gotten multiple email messages by now if your email was among the leaked ones. They can't have possible missed you when the amount of spam even spilled over to email addresses that weren't part of the database hack. 

Now anyone here get any spam to phone number though?  Since its been said phone number could be leaked?
It's irrelevant to you and that information can't help you in any way. My name was in the database hack together with personal details of my friend who received the package in my name. His phone number is in there, but he has not received any SMS messages or spam calls. Even if he did, it doesn't impact you in any way. He has received dozens of emails though.
