We frequently receive DMs from folks who have had their cryptocurrency holdings taken. We also get out to victims that we find on-chain.”

“We ask potential LastPass victims multiple questions and typically have found one commonality between them all being LastPass.”

In 2022, a LastPass breach resulted in the theft of $4.4 million from over 25 victims by threat actors, according per a tweet posted by ZachXBT on X.
