LastPass fixes another critical bug and you have to update.


LastPass the password manager that was used by nearly 16.7 million users have patched the critical bug discovered by Tavis Ormandy, of Google project zero Team.

The company said there is no action needed from user end as your browser extension will be automatically updated to latest version. If you are using LastPass... then just check whether you are running latest version (4.33).


Our team recently investigated and resolved a bug affecting certain LastPass extensions. Tavis Ormandy, a security researcher from Google’s Project Zero, responsibly disclosed the issue to us. His report revealed a limited set of circumstances on specific browser extensions that could potentially allow an attacker to create a clickjacking scenario.   To exploit this bug, a series of actions would need to be taken by a LastPass user including filling a password with the LastPass icon, then visiting a compromised or malicious site and finally being tricked into clicking on the page several times. This exploit may result in the last site credentials filled by LastPass to be exposed. We quickly worked to develop a fix and verified the solution was comprehensive with Tavis.

Latest tech news today - August 28,2019

Camscanner app contains malware..




Kaspersky team, has identified malware in one of the most popular user base app named CamScanner. THis app was found to have trojan served through advertisements.


Here is what they say..

Kaspersky products detect this module as Trojan-Dropper.AndroidOS.Necro.n, which we have observed in some apps preinstalled on Chinese smartphones. As the name suggests, the module is a Trojan Dropper. That means the module extracts and runs another malicious module from an encrypted file included in the app’s resources. This “dropped” malware, in turn, is a Trojan Downloader that downloads more malicious modules depending on what its creators are up to at the moment.
Google removed the app from its playstore, and urges users to uninstall the free version of the app immediately.
