LastPass, A Widely-Used Password Manager, Suffers Data Breach

LastPass, a widely-used and recognized password manager from LogMeIn, recently made an announcement of a recent security breach.

On their official blog, they acknowledged unusual activity within a third-party cloud storage service and stated steps they are currently taking. According to their blog post, a breacher was able to gain unauthorized access using information from a previous August 2022 breach to gain access to certain customer information.

Thankfully, with LastPass’ zero-knowledge security model all passwords are safely encrypted. Only the owner would have access with the master password, not even LastPass or a breacher.
