It’s been a long time since we used a small notebook and a pen to remember. Today, browsers store our identifiers and and there are even specially dedicated to “password management”. One of the most used is since it claims 85 million users and 80,000 companies.
Unfortunately, even on the Internet, shoemakers are not necessarily the best shod, andreveals that LastPass has been the victim of a massive hack. As there are the identifiers and passwords of millions of Internet users, there is something to tremble with. According to the company, which admitted the hack, a hacker took over the account of one of its developers and used this means to access sensitive data.
LastPass does not store password protection
” We have determined that an unauthorized element gained access to portions of the LastPass development environment through a single compromised developer account and took portions of the source code and certain proprietary technical information from LastPass.”, CEO Karim Toubba said in a statement. According to him, customer data was not stolen: ” After launching an investigation afterwards, we have seen no evidence that this incident involved access to customer data or encrypted password vaults.”
It should also be remembered that theused to lock LastPass is not known to the publisher, nor stored on their servers. Each user should memorize and protect it, whether saving it to a file on their , or of course on a small notebook. Like what, pen and paper still have a bright future ahead of them.
