GitGuardian Found Exposed Email Passwords, MySQL Passwords, and Facebook Secrets

Short Video

I got what I thought was spam but it was notification of what we are all afraid of. I had checked in a file containing passwords at some point and deleted it later but it was still visible in the git history.

I'm very thankful to GitGuardian for the service. I was going to delete the file but thought I'd just leave it since all the passwords and secrets have been changed.
