i would not be without it - ever! The last time they had an outage I opened a support request asking how customers should determine what's going on when the status page is inaccessible (always when there's an outage) Given enough time, a brute force attack on an encrypted password may reveal that password in plain text. This article?
There is no way that I can remember a 12 digit, uppercase, lowercase, number, special character log-in for 50+ sites. It will tell you that's less secure. Also the recent update (2014-02-15 07:53:23) fixed a lot of things and I presume they are working on the next batch of bugs. If you can't, just use the same password everywhere. https://forums.lastpass.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=73109
This is not only annoying but also really scary since the impossible-to-remember password you just set on whatever website you were creating an account on is now apparently gone. This would be an awesome piece of software if they would fix just half the problems. Regarding the first method of attack, the researchers found a way to exploit session cookies, allowing them to gain access to the encrypted vault key. "We can use the session cookie Fighting talk from Great Britain as it says it will hit back against internet attacks Leave a reply 19 Comments on "Flaws found in LastPass password manager by security researchers" Notify
Mind you, it IS in LastPass' interest to have this - if they denied it, didn't bother to fix etc, they'll lose customers. It's kinda like having bedbugs. I reported this problem first in December 2011 when it happened the first time then again in April 2012. Lastpass Twitter But there can be way to know for sure, since Ars is unaware of the any comprehensive study testing the security of managers on those platforms.
When you encounter a site that uses basic or digest HTTP authentication (where the login window pops up in front of the site and you log into your browser instead of Lastpass Clear Clipboard It would help some if Lastpass switched to only using a native OS window rather than prompting for authentication within the browser, but it was demonstrated that even that isn't sufficient. For example, I was able to successfully use it to attempt to login to the Al Rajhi bank: As you can clearly see from the red error message, the login credentials Instead of addressing the question about status notification, they tried to explain to me why I really shouldn't have experienced an outage "your browser should have automatically failed over to the
Now that LastPass has been bought by LogMeIn it remains to be seen whether they will rectify them.

Some better solutions would be : Locking the account down until the user either logs in and disables 2-factor auth, or re-enrolls in lastpass premium with a new credit card An
Reply Joshua says: June 17, 2013 at 5:48 am I definitely agree that a better font could be chosen for the display of the passwords in LastPass, however, if you look I thought I’d ask 1Password given these guys spend a bunch of time thinking about how to securely get creds into websites. It's easy! Hard to argue with that although in fairness, this is often something dictated to them (although perhaps they should be doing a better job of articulating the counter-reasons).

Those shouldn't have any sort of copy of the login dialog. Update : Lastpass 3.2.20 claims to address this issue. I wish I had a better alternative to suggest. Lastpass Security Has anybody tried it?
Nice article!! Any items in your vault that have a icon next to them indicate that they have outstanding updates. I created a new favorite with username and password. LastPass and the developers of other vulnerable managers should be forthright about the risks and tell users what they can do to protect themselves.
If anything this reinforces the need for Pushbullet to look into end to end encryption. I'm not sure if there is any easy solution to this since the command line tool doesn't seem to support logging in to a site.
