This week LastPass, a popular password manager which is often invoked in discussions around securing multiple passwords, announced it had detected suspicious activity on their network, saying: "We want to notify our community that on Friday, our team discovered and blocked suspicious activity on our network. In our investigation, we have found no evidence that encrypted user vault data was taken, nor that LastPass user accounts were accessed. The investigation has shown, however, that LastPass account email addresses, password reminders, server per user salts, and authentication hashes were compromised."
While many users consider their passwords completely secure with products like this, the specifics of the data the would-be hackers may have accessed remind us that "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" is a relevant question and important concept when considering security. Fortunately, LastPass has their guards in the right place at the right time. For a Q and A with their users, click here.
