  2. Tomi Engdahl says:
    LastPass isn’t the only password manager in the news, and the problems found in Passwordstate makes the recent LastPass issues seem like the most minor of inconveniences. Passwordstate is an enterprise solution for password management. Researchers at modzero started with the browser extension, that allows a user to access saved passwords. To authenticate, a token is generated and sent to the server. Turns out, that token is just the username and other user information, XOR’d with a static, universal key. And on the server side, the only check that happens is on the username. So on any Passwordstate install anywhere, if you can talk to the API, and know a valid username, you can pull every password accessible to that account.
