LastPass hacked

(1/3) > >>

LastPass has issued a Security Notice saying that they have been hacked resulting in account owners personal information being compromised.

They claim that no password data was breached, but recommend that all users change their master password ASAP.


"They claim ..." - I don't even know how to believe stuff like that anymore. Because if that data were breached? Instant bankruptcy? Lawsuits?

This is the "other shoe dropping" that's always bothered me:

1. Put all your passwords to your entire life into a service
2. Service gets hacked

Uh ...

^+1 :(

That's exactly the reason I never used LastPass :tellme:

I used it for awhile to make login for forums easier across browsers.  But now I just manage cookies.  I never put anything online that is sensitive unless I am forced to do so.

Same here. How ultimately is having one password that opens all accounts really different than using the same password for all accounts? The end result is the same if an attacker picks the right entry point.
