Last Pass hacked! Change your master password!

Last Pass has been hacked. If you are a user you should change your master password as soon as possible. It appears that only the Master passwords were hacked.

They are experiencing some issues with a lot of people changing their Master password. It may take several attempts.

    I never understood why anyone ever thought that an online password service was any more immune to hackers than any other web site.

    Just about everyone here has had a WordPress blog hacked, and the #1 reason given is that WP is so prolific (compared to other blogging platforms) that it made them a much bigger target.

    By creating an online password storage/retrieval platform, LastPass created a more lucrative target for the hackers.

    I, personally, am similarly leery of any site that allows sign up using your G+ or Facebook account. Efficient work habits are good - but lazy doesn't equate to efficient.

    I'll manage my own passwords, thank you.
