LastPass Security Incident


I received a mail from the LastPass team Today reporting that parts of its users’ data may have been stolen recentlySurprised smile 

It really scares me! As many people I know use LastPass to manage their personal password, like Email account, netbank account. There is definitely NO 100% safe place in the cyber world. Just a few days ago,  the Sony network has been hacked. Lots of their customers’ credit card informatino have been stolen.

************************************
Dear LastPass User,

On May 3rd, we discovered suspicious network activity on the LastPass internal network. After investigating, we determined that it was possible that a limited amount of data was accessed. All LastPass accounts were quickly locked down, preventing access from unknown locations. We then announced our findings and course of action on our blog and spoke with the media.
As you know, LastPass does not have access to your master password or your confidential data. To further secure your account, LastPass now requires you to verify your identity when logging in. You will be prompted to validate your email if you try to log in from a new location. This prompt will continue to appear until you change your master password or indicate that you are comfortable with the strength of your master password.

Thanks,
The LastPass Team
