Linked – Security Update for the LastPass Extension

posted in: Links, Tech | 0

There’s a security issue inside the Lastpass browser exension that could allow a hacker to get in between you and Lastpass, and get all your info. While they correct the issue, they do have some recommendations to stay safe, or consider turning of the browser extension for a little bit.

  1. Use the LastPass Vault as a launch pad – Launch sites directly from the LastPass vault. This is the safest way to access your credentials and sites until this vulnerability is resolved.
  2. Two-Factor Authentication on any service that offers it – Whenever possible, turn on two-factor authentication with your accounts; many websites now offer this option for added security.
  3. Beware of Phishing Attacks – Always be vigilant to avoid phishing attempts. Do not click on links from people you don’t know, or that seem out of character from your trusted contacts and companies. Take a look at our phishing primer.
