"We recently detected unusual activity within a third-party cloud storage service, which is currently shared by both LastPass and its affiliate, GoTo," the company said.
"We have determined that an unauthorized party, using information obtained in the August 2022 incident, was able to gain access to certain elements of our customers' information."
Customers' passwords haven't been compromised due to LastPass's Zero Knowledge design. But it was also noted the full scope of the incident is not yet identified and what information has been accessed by the hacker.
