Last Friday, the folks at LastPass, keepers of the password on all sorts of platforms, noticed “suspicious activity” on their network and decided to go ahead and shut down that noise down. (Thanks!)

According to LastPass, that means that l33t hax0rs (hackers) were able to grab “account email addresses, password reminders, server per user salts, and authentication hashes.” Yikes. Thankfully, they have found no evidence of user vault data being taken, which is awesome news, since that’s where all of your passwords for other websites are stored. (more…)

If you are the type to always forget that certain password to that certain website, there are services available which can help you store this type of sensitive information, while also making sure it is incredibly protected at the same time.
Let’s just get this out there: remembering passwords is the worst. We all know that we are supposed to have complicated, long passwords that have nothing to do with our history.
