LastPass breach puts you at risk

Over break, the password manager LastPass announced a serious data breach that exposed encrypted passphrase vaults.

If you use LastPass to store passwords, please update any stored passwords immediately, prioritizing IU passwords and personal high-risk accounts such as banking credentials. Also plan a transition to another passphrase manager, as LastPass security practices seem inadequate to mediate this kind of risk.
