LastPass forces password resets after possible attack
When you run a service which lets users store every single password they ever create in the cloud, you don't mess around when suspicious activity is spotted on your network. That's precisely why LastPass has taken swift action and forced all its users to reset their master passwords this morning. The process only takes a minute -- just click to send yourself a reset email and then create a new, suitably strong password.
Don't forget, LastPass was also called on the carpet for an XSS vulnerability back in February 2011, a threat which it also addressed promptly. It's good to see them respond so quickly to this latest incident, even if only turns out to be nothing more than an "oddity."
