Passwordstate, an enterprise password manager developed by Click Studios, suffered a supply chain attack between April 20 and April 22. The company notified its customers over email and warned them to reset any passwords which were stored in Passwordstate.

In an advisory statement published on April 24, Click Studios said the attackers used sophisticated techniques to compromise Passwordstate’s update functionality. Once installed, the malicious updates established contact with the attacker's server to fetch a malware ("upgrade_service_upgrade.zip") that extracted Passwordstate data and exported the information back to the attacker's CDN network.

If you are a Passwordstate customer disappointed over the recent developments and are looking for a secure, reliable alternative, we recommend you to check out Securden Unified Privileged Access Manager (PAM).
