Default LastPass hacked


LastPass said it discovered the digital break-in on Friday. It's still very early in its investigation, but if LastPass is right, hackers didn't manage to grab plain text versions of the all-powerful master passwords.
Still, hackers grabbed encoded versions of people's passwords. But if your master password is simple and common, like Password123, these hackers can crack it in no time. Hackers can also easily rent out computer servers and use computing power to decipher all the others.
