LastPass hacked: data at risk for password manager users?

The hacker attack that hit the LastPass password manager was successful thanks to a developer account that had been compromise. The violation, according to initial analyzes, would have occurred about a couple of weeks ago. At the moment, the company said, there is no evidence of further breaches of LastPass servers. According to the information revealed to date, there would be no unauthorized access to customer data or encrypted password vaults.

LastPass also guaranteed that, thanks to the “zero knowledge” architecture, the company cannot know the passwords of users who, therefore, are safe from any hacker attacks. Further updates on the issue should arrive in the next few days. The guarantees provided by the company, however, can reassure the millions of users who have chosen to rely on LastPass for the management of their data. Passwords are safe.
