LastPass Developer System Breached to Steal Source Code

LastPass, one of the most popular password managers in the world with over 25 million users, has acknowledged a breach. In a warning released on August 25, LastPass CEO Karim Toubba claimed that “portions of source code and some proprietary LastPass technical information” had been taken by an unauthorized party.

It is alleged that the security breach, which targeted its development environment, happened two weeks ago. No encrypted passwords or customer information were accessed.

The company announced that it has hired renowned cybersecurity and forensics firm and that it has put additional countermeasures in place as part of the ongoing investigation into the incident.

“We have no evidence that this incident involved any access to customer data or encrypted password vaults,” the message added. 

Is LastPass Still Safe

However, The password manager did not go into detail regarding the specific mitigation strategies it employed to strengthen its environment. It added that there is no proof of further malicious activity and reiterated that the hack did not affect users’ master passwords.

Because of the ‘zero knowledge’ architecture used, LastPass has made it clear that master passwords are never saved. According to Toubba, “LastPass can never know or gain access to our customers’ master passwords. Your master password was not compromised by this incident.”

Users currently don’t need to take any action. According to LastPass, there are more than 100,000 business accounts and over 33 million active users.
