Part of the series: Privacy and Security

In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security

On June 15, LastPass disclosed that it had been hacked, and I think by now just about everyone has heard about it. I know I received questions because I have recommended LastPass often, and my advice has been to stay with them. What I want to do now is explain exactly why this was not quite the big deal it was made out to be in some quarters, and that anyone telling you to stop using password vaults is only asking you to lower your own security.

Free as in freedom. Would not be unethical?
