Potent LastPass exploit underscores the dark side of password managers
Old news. Lastpass fixed a good chunk of the issue before news of the exploit was released.
Yes, there are still things to fix, but the ability to exploit the original finding is no longer possible.
(This popped in my Hacker News feed a few days ago.)
Good to know. LastPass also provides two-factor authentication.
Here's the official word from Lastpass.
Security Update for the LastPass Extension | The LastPass Blog
I will skip the two-factor authentication process or option although I'm glad the option is there. For the present I'll just trust in my 17 digit mixed numbers, letters, and special character password.
My biggest fear is what happens if for whatever reason LastPass either crashes for an extended period of time or goes unexpectedly and suddenly out of business. I have a great number of sites that I have to log in. I only know by memory the passwords for a couple.
Used LastPass for years both in and out of the United States and love it.
