LastPass password manager service gets hacked

Friday - 5/6/2011, 5:12pm EDT

The password manager service LastPass promoted itself as the last password you'll ever need. Now the creators of LastPass are urging users to change their master passwords after the company's database was hacked.

Dark Reading reports LastPass says it detected what it calls a "network traffic anomaly" in its database that houses email addresses and passwords.

Last Pass says they think a small number of users are at risk, based on the amount of information that hackers took out of their database before they found the hole.
