The passpass password manager was the victim of a hacker attack, told by the CEO of Karim Tubba, who said that the perpetrators were only able to steal classified technical information that had nothing to do with the users.
The break-in took place about two weeks ago, and unknown people were able to access the developer's environment through one of the employee's compromised accounts. As a result, hackers stole some of the product's source code and the proprietary modules used in it.
The company was assured that the perpetrators had not been able to reach the user passwords, so there was no need to change them. Mr. Tubba specified that hackers could not obtain user passwords because they were not stored in the system. The developers had also introduced additional security measures to prevent similar incidents in the future and had engaged forensic investigators for further investigation.
LastPass is the most popular password manager in the world. According to Bloomberg, over 33 million people and over 100,000 companies use the service.
