LastPass, an Internet company that offers a way to centrally manage passwords, disclosed a data breach in which email addresses, password reminders and encrypted password hashes (digital fingerprint) were accessed. Authorized shoppers who store information for shopmyexchange.com and MyECP.com accounts through LastPass should change their passwords for these accounts. LastPass advises users to change their master password if it was used as a password at other websites and to also enable multifactor authentication, which protects accounts by requiring two forms of identification for access.
