Password app LastPass hit by cybersecurity breach but says data remains safe

Password manager LastPass has told customers that some of their information has been accessed in a cybersecurity breach, but says passwords remain safe.

LastPass is one of several password managers in the market that aims to reduce the reuse of passwords online, by storing themin a single app. It also makes it easier for users to generate strong passwords as required.

In August, LastPass determined that some of its source code and technical information was taken from unauthorised access to a third-party storage service the company had been using.

At the time LastPass said the attacker had taken portions of source code and some proprietary LastPass technical information, but believed the risk to the app was limited.

LastPass said that its production environment was physically separate to the development environment and not directly connected. The company also conducted an analysis of its source code and production builds to verify there were no attempts to inject malicious code.

Toubba said the company would put in place more security measures and monitoring to detect any more threat actor activity.
