LastPass developer systems hacked to steal source code

Password management firm LastPass was hacked two weeks ago, allowing threat actors to steal the company’s source code and proprietary technical information.

After requests for information, LastPass released a security advisory today confirming that the company was breached through a compromised developer account that was used to access the company’s developer environment.

While LastPass says there is no evidence that customer data or encrypted password vaults were compromised, the threat actors did steal portions of their source code and “Proprietary LastPass technical information.”

LastPass has not provided further details regarding the attack, how the threat actors compromised the developer account, and what source code was stolen.

LastPass stores passwords in ‘encrypted vaults’ that can only be decrypted using a customer’s master password, which LastPass says was not compromised in this cyberattack.

Last year, LastPass suffered a credential stuffing attack that allowed threat actors to confirm a user’s master password.
