LastPass, one of the most popular third-party password managers, is warning all users of a “security incident” that its team is actively investigating. In a blog post on Wednesday, the company assured users that “passwords remain safely encrypted”.

“We have determined that an unauthorized party, using information obtained in the August 2022 incident, was able to gain access to certain elements of our customers’ information,” wrote Karim Toubba, LastPass CEO. “As part of our efforts, we continue to deploy enhanced security measures and monitoring capabilities across our infrastructure to help detect and prevent further threat actor activity.”

Customer passwords remain safely encrypted due to LastPass’s Zero Knowledge architecture. More info: https://t.co/xk2vKa7icq pic.twitter.com/ynuGVwiZcK
