LastPass Hacked

The popular password manager LastPass became a victim of a security threat. The intruders got access to the server via an exposed developer account. They managed to access and steal source code along with proprietary technical information. No other information became accessible to the intruders. As a result, 33 million users’ data remain safe and users are not required to change their passwords. Currently, they have ongoing investigations to reduce further attacks and strengthen the environment.

Web Tool Of The Month

You could argue that the tool of the month is not a tool, but you can build with it. System.css is a CSS library for building interfaces that resemble the Apple Mac OS from 1984-1991. Currently, it has components such as buttons, checkboxes, inputs, and select menus. You can also build window dialogs, content boxes and title bars.

The code is not tied to a framework, so you can use it with any front-end framework or with vanilla JavaScript. It’s currently in beta and there are more features planned for future releases. If you like a bit of retro give it a whirl in your next project.
