In 2022, LastPass disclosed that it had been hacked, and I think by now just about everyone has heard about it. Now we have evidence that password vaults have been hacked. So what does this mean, and what should you do?

One consideration when it comes to the LastPass breach is that attackers are actively working to compromise individual vaults exposed by the data. They seem to be targeting known cryptocurrency traders, but if you had a weak or guessable password or low iterations of encryption, the information you stored in your vault may become available to attackers. It is recommended that, whether you choose to stay with LastPass or not, you change all of the passwords, keys, important secrets, etc which you stored in your vault.
