LastPass, a program that helps you remember all of your passwords and create new, secure passwords, has been hacked. This occurred in early June. The hackers got away with email addresses and the passwords to other accounts and plugins. Fortunately, the master password to any account was not taken, however it is recommended that you change your master password, and definitely change the minor passwords linked to the account. The chief executive of LastPass wrote in a blog on their website: “We are confident that our encryption measures are sufficient to protect the vast majority of users.” More information can be found on their blog and website at https://blog.lastpass.com/2015/06/lastpass-security-notice.html/
