last smoke

Posted on Aug 31, 2022

The CEO of LastPass, a fairly well known password manager, last week made public a security incident. It seems an unauthorized party gained access to a developer account and through that gained access to a developer environment. Said party then seems to have gained access to portions of their source code and proprietary technical information.

This company seems to have an interesting history with various security incidents.

Will they continue to be your go to way to securely manage your secrets in the future? The parent company does have a reputation to take great software and make them soulless products with degraded engineering quality and capability.

Smoke and fire and all that. We may have to return to c on how LastPass fares when you have Keepass, KeepassXC, Bitwarden, etc. being real alternatives based on the foundations of being open sourced.
