LastPass Fixes Serious Security Flaw in Chrome, Firefox Extensions

Time to update folks.

Password manager LastPass has fixed a serious vulnerability in its browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. The flaw was discovered by Google's Tavis Ormandy, reports Network World. It could have been exploited to access extensions' internal commands and steal passwords or personal information.

LastPass has put a workaround in place to provide protection from malicious codes and plans to fully fix the flaw in updated versions.
