What you need to know

  • LastPass says its customers’ password vaults have fallen into the hands of cybercriminals.
  • The hackers used information they obtained from a previous incident that LastPass disclosed last August.
  • Master passwords remain secure and LastPass says it will take millions of years for hackers to guess them.

The security breach disclosed by LastPass in August is worse than previously thought. LastPass has confirmed that cybercriminals used information obtained from the previous incident to obtain encrypted password vaults and other customer data.

According to the latest update (opens in a new tab) from the password manager, hackers were able to “copy a backup copy of customer vault data from the encrypted storage container,” which contained both unencrypted data such as URLs and encrypted data fields such as website usernames and passwords, secure notes, and form-filled data.
