LastPass confirms users’ password vaults were stolen by hackers

What you need to know

  • LastPass says that customers’ password vaults have ended up in 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 revealed 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 new tab) from the password manager, hackers were able to “copy a backup of customer vault data from the encrypted storage container,” which contained both unencrypted data like URLs and encrypted data fields like website usernames and passwords, secure notes, and form-filled data.
