Sneaky Hackers Break into LastPass Developer System and Make Off with Source Code
The famous password management service LastPass confirmed that hackers made off with the system's source code and other technical information. Although no customer data or encrypted passwords had been breached, the company wasn't at liberty to provide any additional details.
LastPass' CEO, Karim Toubba, states that "an unauthorized party gained access to portions of the LastPass development environment through a single compromised developer account and took portions of source code and some proprietary LastPass technical information."
The company did share that they're working on developing further cybersecurity measures to prevent this from happening again. LastPass has over 33 million active users and over 100,000 business accounts.
