LastPass Source Code Stolen in Data Breach


LastPass, a provider of password management software, experienced a data breach that resulted in the theft of source code and other technical data.

The GoTo-owned business announced the incident in an online notice released on Thursday but assured that client master passwords and any encrypted password vault data had not been exposed. The source code theft was confirmed by an investigation, according to LastPass CEO Karim Toubba, after the company’s security staff noticed strange behavior in several areas of the development environment two weeks ago.

According to LastPass, the incident did not affect Master Passwords, which control access to encrypted vaults in its most popular password manager product.
