Hackers Steal $4.4 Million From 25 Users of Lastpass Password Management App
More Than 80 Addresses CompromisedAccording to the online crypto theft investigator Zachxbt, approximately $4.4 million was stolen from more than 25 individuals using the password manager app Lastpass. The theft, which is said to have occurred on Oct.25, is suspected to be the work of a single threat actor. At the time of writing, more than 80 distinct addresses were compromised. An analysis of the breach published on Chainabuse suggests that the theft may be “related to a larger case that dates back to at least December 2022.” As previously reported by Bitcoin.com News, the password management app’s cloud-based storage environment was breached in August 2022 but Lastpass only confirmed this on Dec. 22, 2022. Following the revelation, Lastpass attempted to reassure worried users but this was largely met with scepticism.
Just on October 25, 2023 alone another ~$4.4M was drained from 25+ victims as a result of the LastPass hack.Cannot stress this enough, if you believe you may have ever stored your seed phrase or keys in LastPass migrate your crypto assets immediately. pic.twitter.com/26HsxrlnCb — ZachXBT (@zachxbt) October 27, 2023
