    If you use Lastpass it may be a good idea to change your password and AFAIK you will be forced to soon as the site may have been compromised.

    Most everything I've read has blown this out of proportion. They cannot read your passwords (as LastPass can't do that either) as that is how the system works. The "attacker" (no proof they were attacked - just a traffic anomaly) would have to first brute force your master password, and then try and login to the site (now having to use your IP/email) before they could even try and steal your information.
