LastPass Hacked (13 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 16-June-2015  11:36:00 (GMT +10) - by Agg

HS sent word that password manager service LastPass have been hacked, with some sensitive data exposed. While the company says that there is no evidence that user vault data (a user's stored passwords) was taken or that accounts were accessed, it did acknowledge that user email addresses, authentication hashes, password reminders and server per user salts were compromised. LastPass is confident that its encryption is strong enough to make attacking those stolen hashes with any speed difficult.

So, if you have a LastPass account, you should probably change your password(s) and switch on two-factor authentication.
