Trust me

Google sent me an email this morning telling me to change my passwords

It had a long list of passwords that it thought it knew and wanted me to change.

I assume that it got them from some very ancient data dump.  There were a bunch of things on there I'd forgotten I ever had a password to, and of the things that I actually still use, none of the passwords was even close to being up to date.   I wonder why it assumed that I was still using passwords from... idk, probably around 2010, at a guess?  Maybe earlier.
